The Other Boleyn Girl

For about a month now Mark's mom has been telling me that I simply had to read "The Other Boleyn Girl" She said I would absolutely love it. But, I have to admit, I really wasn't looking forward to reading a 661 page story on the life of Mary Boleyn, Anne's younger sister. Everyone knows Anne Boleyn as the wife of King Henry VIII who ahd the misfortune of having her head chopped off. (OUCH!) Needless to say, I was not very nxious to begin this book. However, after only the first two pages, I could not put it down. It is written from the viewpoint of Mary Bolelyn, from her days as a young lady in court to winning the favor of the King of England. It's intersting that everything that she must endure is not for her sake, but the sake of her family. NOthing, and I mean nothing, is a private matter when you are competing for the love of the king.
