I have read Gregory's Tudor series a few times now. This is a great read from the original view point of Mary Boleyn. Historically accurate in the big things but also artistic license is taken to fill in the blanks on conversations and motivations.

Easy read. I will read it yet again sometime in the future. This is the first P. Gregory book I've read. Although at times I found it a bit repetitive, and that made the story drag a bit, I enjoyed the book. Very good book, a little dreary in some parts. Nothing like the movie 10x better with way more insight into not only Mary but also Anne. All of Philipa's books are great! Gives a whole new meaning to "sisterly love" and sibling rivalry!!

Another miscarriage in followed by a girl who died just a few hours after birth in In all, Catherine was pregnant seven times. One of them, Mary, survived. As we learned earlier, Mary and William Carey were married in We know that Mary had a couple children around this time.

Do you remember earlier when we learned about the historian Hugh Paget dating a letter from Anne to ? She was in Brussels then as a maid of honor in the court there.

She was sent away from England not because she secretly married Henry Percy, but rather because Sir Thomas wanted his daughter to receive a great education so she could go far in the courts of England. That would also mean the entourage including, we can assume, the two Boleyn girls.

She stayed there until returning to England in at the request of her father, who set her up to marry a man named James Butler. Remember when Mary Boleyn was married to William Carey in ? Well, that happened after Mary returned to England. At least, a lot of historians believe that was rumored to have happened. But Henry Percy did end up returning to Northumberland where he married the girl he had been betrothed to, Mary Talbot.

That includes annulling his marriage to Catherine. We already learned about the difficulties that Henry and Catherine had to have children, and that put a massive strain on the marriage.

By , most historians believe Henry and Catherine had stopped having sexual relations. Historians have debated about exactly when Henry started to pursue Anne, but it was probably either in late or early Just like the movie shows, Anne played hard to get and that only made Henry pursue her even more.

And again, like the movie shows, Henry showered Anne with gifts. For that to happen, Anne would have to be his wife. For that to happen, he would have to get rid of Catherine. The Church, of course, weighing heavily on the law of the land in those days.

So basically, before Catherine married Henry, she was married to a man named Arthur. Soon after their marriage, both Arthur and Catherine came down with what many historians consider to be the sweating sickness. Catherine managed to survive the sickness, but Arthur did not. He succumbed, passing away just five months after marrying Catherine.

Had the sickness kept Catherine and Arthur from consummating their marriage? Then, after being smitten with Anne, he used this as a way of legally getting out of the marriage with Catherine.

In particular, some historians believe Henry thought his marriage to Catherine was cursed by God.

Henry used the verse from Leviticus as proof, along with the fact that Catherine had yet to produce a male heir. Never mind the fact that Henry and Catherine did have a child together…remember the girl?

So when the king wanted to get an annulment from the Church for his marriage to Catherine, it was Cardinal Wolsey who tried to get it from the Pope for the king.The Nightingale. Dazzled, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. There are moments when this is drama at its best.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Mary Boleyn seemed, at times too innocent and tongue-tied, and at other times an intelligent observer of human nature.

What's frustrating is that people think this book is historically accurate, and it doesn't come close.
