I normally don't like historical fiction. It's dry as dust and dull as white bread dipped in water. It never catches my attention and never holds it. In fact, it's a genre that I normally ignore completely. At the urging of my husband, I'm currently reading The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory and all I can say is: WOW!
Everyone knows the story of Anne Boleyn and how she ensnared Henry VIII. But what about her sister Mary?
The book is absolutely incredible and an intimate portrayal of long ago court life. Gregory peppers her historical fact with just enough believable fiction that you feel as if you're reading a literary bodice ripper.
Fantastic, wonderful stuff. And a perfect summer book!
