The #1 New York Times bestseller from “the queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory is a rich, compelling novel of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue surrounding the Tudor court of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and the infamous Boleyn family.

When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of the handsome and charming Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family’s ambitious plots as the king’s interest begins to wane, and soon she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. With her own destiny suddenly unknown, Mary realizes that she must defy her family and take fate into her own hands.

With more than one million copies in print and adapted for the big screen, The Other Boleyn Girl is a riveting historical drama. It brings to light a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe, and survived a treacherous political landscape by following her heart.

What a piece of yellow journalism

I used to respect Ms. Gregory, as I had read all her books and thought her a gifted writer & historian. However, the way that she slandered Anne Boleyn & her brother, despite the fact that the trumped-up charges were nothing more than that. Even the way the King executed Anne showed some kind of remorse. Let's face it, the TRULY unfaithful wife, Catherine Howard, was NOT executed by sword & an expert executioner. I was really disappointed that Ms. Gregory would stoop to such sensationalism.

Couldn't put it down!

It's rare that I find a book that I just can't stop reading. It grabbed me from the opening scene with great characters, a wonderful plot, scandal, treachery, history and romance. I finished it in just a few days and have been wishing it had been twice as long!
