3. The other Boleyn girl Philippa Gregory

The story of the ambition of the Boleyn/Howard family to put one oftheir own on the throne. Told through the eyes of Mary Boleyn who was raised in a French court, brought back to England and married at 12 and became the King's mistress by 14. We follow Mary from a young girl who trusts her family to a woman who marries for love and turns her back on the court and her family.

The historical detail is enchanting and following this ambitious family who will stop at nothing to get more of everything was very entertaining. The highest compliment I can give is I'm having a difficult time deciding who to loan this book to first.
