The Boleyn Inheritance
The Boleyn Inheritance | Philippa Gregory
THREE WOMEN WHO SHARE ONE FATE: THE BOLEYN INHERITANCE ANNE OF CLEVES She runs from her tiny country, her hateful mother, and her abusive brother to a throne whose last three occupants are dead. King Henry VIII, her new husband, instantly dislikes her. Without friends, family, or even an understanding of the language being spoken around her, she must literally save her neck in a court ruled by a deadly game of politics and the terror of an unpredictable and vengeful king. Her Boleyn Inheritance: accusations and false witnesses. KATHERINE HOWARD She catches the king's eye within moments of arriving at court, setting in motion the dreadful machine of politics, intrigue, and treason that she does not understand. She only knows that she is beautiful, that men desire her, that she is young and in love -- but not with the diseased old man who made her queen, beds her night after night, and killed her cousin Anne. Her Boleyn Inheritance: the threat of the axe. JANE ROCHFORD She is the Boleyn girl whose testimony sent her husband and sister-in-law to their deaths. She is the trusted friend of two threatened queens, the perfectly loyal spy for her uncle, the Duke of Norfolk, and a canny survivor in the murderous court of a most dangerous king. Throughout Europe, her name is a byword for malice, jealousy, and twisted lust. Her Boleyn Inheritance: a fortune and a title, in exchange for her soul. The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about a court ruled by the gallows and three women whose positions brought them wealth, admiration, and power as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror. Once again, Philippa Gregory has brought a vanished world to life -- the whisper of a silk skirt on a stone stair, the yellow glow of candlelight illuminating a hastily written note, the murmurs of the crowd gathering on Tower Green below the newly built scaffold. In The Boleyn Inheritance Gregory is at her intelligent and page-turning best.

I hit a cool milestone in Goodreads today. 1000 books on my Read shelf. I started using Goodreads 10 years ago and the tagged book was the first one I shelved as read in May 13, 2009. So that's 1000 books in 10 years 🤪. I wish I had kept a count of how many I'd read up til then (I was 35 at the time so it had been a lot lol)

Liatrek That is so awesome 🎉🎉🎉 5mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Another great one! In fact, I think this may be my favorite of the series so far! I especially love that it focused on women we don‘t know much about.

brit91 I love her books the white princess and the white queen and the tudors! 6mo
wideeyedreader @brit91 I haven‘t read the White Princess yet, but I loved the White Queen as well! 6mo

I‘m trying to read the Plantagenet & Tudor novels in order, but my collection is missing a huge chunk of them in the middle! So I‘m jumping forward to the tagged, lol

This is Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk. He was the worst. While reading this book and the one before it, I kept thinking of that quote from All‘s Well that Ends Well: “Me think‘st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee.” The fact that he kept getting family members and associates executed while living to tell more tales is maddening.

Excellent book, however! It‘s particularly great to see Anne of Cleves given a voice.

So middle school me got so nervous reading this that I had to stop. Now present day me, who has a fanatical interest in the Tudors, has finally decided to give it another try. #historylit
