The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory

The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
514 pages
Finished 10/14/07

I go back and forth on this author - the first book that I read by her (The Other Boleyn Girl) I really liked, but most of her other stuff has been crap. Really.

That being said, overall I did end up liking this book. It's a compelling story, and the author has clearly done her research on the Tudors. Along the same lines, while it's clear she has done her research, I also enjoy how she puts her own spin on things - there is a reason this is called historicalfiction. She will probably never be considered a literary great, but she writes a compelling and interesting story.

I give it three stars.
