Description

The acclaimed international bestseller set around the Tudor court, during the years when Henry VIII traded his mistress Mary Boleyn for courtship of her sister Anne - and tracing the extraordinary events that changed the course of a country's history.

When Henry VIII tires of pretty young Mary Boleyn, her powerful family instructs her to promote her sister, Anne, as a replacement.

But Anne Boleyn, newly returned from the French court, intelligent and spirited, doesn't agree to be Henry's mistress - only his wife.

PItting the king's desperation for an heir against his powerful advisors - Wolsey, Cromwell and Dukes of Norfolk and Suffolk - what Anne brings about will change the course of a country's history.

Told with all of Philippa Gregory's characteristic perceptiveness, backed by meticulous historical research and superb storytelling skills, The Other Boleyn Girl brings a legendary court, its politics, personalities and scheming vividly to life.
