A to Z: O is for the Other Boleyn Girl

15 Apr

O is for the Other Boleyn Girl, the second novel in Philippa Gregory’s fantastic Tudor Court series, which my mom and I both adore.  (Mom even came with me to meet Gregory and to have all of our books signed!)  This series is a labour of love – so much research is evident in the luscious details of the narrative, and Gregory shows just how much of King Henry’s reign was shaped by the woman at his side.  I can only imagine how the (real) other Boleyn girl must have felt about her sister.  What a journey.  What a life.

 

O - Other Boleyn Girl 

This was my first Philippa Gregory book, and it was just the best way to get introduced to her wonderful writing and this very satisfying genre.  Do you like historical fiction?
