I heard about this book recently somewhere? online, & immediately requested a copy from the library, Tudor crazy buff that I am. I’ve always been especially a little obsessed with poor Jane Boleyn – can you imagine, this poor woman, marrying into the crazy Boleyn family (no choice there, but to do what one was told), only to end up having a QUEEN as a sister in law, having to obey her every command, & then to lose your husband as a supposed traitor? Only to end up going on to serve, as lady in waiting, another three queens, only to end up losing your own life in the end? Truth is stranger than fiction, 9 times out of 10, & this book was no exception.
It’s well written, very clear, & very through. Of course, there’s a big chunk about Anne Boleyn, how could there not be? There is some speculation, & I wish that Fox went into more detail about the events that led Jane to her death – this was really what I was reading the book for, & there’s really not much “meat on the bones” there, but of course, history doesn’t leave us much details, either.
