I've read enough non-fiction about Anne Boleyn and the Tudors in general to know that there is some time line fiddling and poetic license that takes place in this novel. However, this is an EXCELLENT little book - far more accurate than the current cable series about the Tudors. I really enjoyed the POV - Frances was easy to empathize with, though she was a dummy at times. I finally understood a lot more about the "game" that the members of court played and how you really did put your life on the line to be a part of a royal court.

This fictional book tells the tale of Anne Boleyn's rise and fall through the eyes of her favorite lady's maid. This books is fast-paced and historically rich. It really delves into the politics of the day without ever boring the reader.

A wonderful tale of Anne Boleyn as told by one of her ladies in waiting. I was completely caught up in the life of the maid as well as that of Anne, despite knowing Anne's "story" by heart!

I loved this book. It follows the rise of Anne Bolyen through the eyes of one of her ladies. It was an easy read and I loved that is also followed the romances of the Lady and not just Anne. If you like Tudor fiction this is a good one.
