Philippa Gregory has drawn convincing portraits of Henry VIII's fourth and fifth wives: Anne of Cleves, sensible, warm-hearted and wise; and Katherine Howard, foolish, impulsive and self-centered. Her grasp of Jane Boleyn's character is not as strong, and the novel drags in the middle, but overall it was a good read and better than "The Other Boleyn Girl."
