This was a good book. It centered around Anne Boleyn before Henry VIII.
It is nice to read a book where the author is trying to know who Anne was and how she got that way. Highly Recommended!

Robin Maxwell delivers a most compelling story. I absolutely couldn't put this book down until I finished it. Although we all know how it ends, the time between is the draw. What must it have been like for Anne? Robin Maxwell paints a picture for us in this book. Her descriptive writing style leaves nothing out. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone (and I have ) who likes this period. I have read all of her books and she is a very perceptive writer. I would also recommend Seniora De Vinci, wonderful!! I emailed her from her web site as well to ask about a book, and she was very quick to respond and asked me to email her after I had read her book.

This was a great book! I loved reading about the young Anne Boleyn.

This was an engaging read. It was meticulously researched for historical fact, although since we just don't know a lot about Anne Boleyn and what went on when she was in the French court, a lot of creative license is used. For example, we know Leonardo DaVinci was there the same time as Anne was, but we don't know if they even met. So the author takes creative license at that point, and makes them friends. That particular creative license helps the story along quite well. Reading this has made me hungry for more books from this particular author.

Not bad, but with all historical fiction, you have to take some of this with the proverbial grain of salt. 'The Other Boleyn Girl', another book about Ann Boleyn, paints her in an entirely different light. Granted, this book is set when she is a very young girl, but she comes across as sweet as can be, which is not the case in 'The Other Boleyn Girl'. Despite the differences in the two, this is still an enjoyable read, and I actually forgot what her fate eventually was while reading this.

I have read almost every book written about Anne Boylen and this was not my favorite.
