Philippa Gregory is the acknowledged queen of historical fiction, and this novel again displays her trademark blend of passion and politics, authenticity, and tremendously gripping storytelling.

"Gregory's accounts of events are accurate enough to be persuasive, her characterizations modern enough to be convincing. Rich in intrigue and irony, this is a tale where readers will already know who was divorced, beheaded, or survived, but will savor Gregory's sharp staging of how and why." (Publishers Weekly)
Thank goodness for the fabulous oratory skills of Amelia Fox to relate the tales of these womens lives in The Tudor court . Caught in the era of Henry viii 's descent into madness with a cuelty that is hard to fathom these women fortunes are finalised by intrigue and manipulation by powerful men . They were but pawns. Highly recommended.
"Very good book. Thoroughly enjoyed it."
Enjoyed this book and the content was interesting. I would have liked to have learnt more about each wife from their own view
