I said it wasn't the best, especially not when she used the words "**** off" three times... I would guess that wouldn't had been said back in the days?
Also we follow Anne Boleyn and Lucy Cornwallis, two stories that does not involve each other the slightest. It dosen't even seem to match up in the time frame, while Lucy is telling the story one preson is dead but when reading about Anne's story the person is still alive.
Not a crap book but I would not recommend it to anyone really. Got Dunn's other books, lets see if they might be any better...


I just started this one today. See what you mean about the language. The double story-line thing doesn't work for me either. And I find her Anne a little annoying. It doesn't really sound like her, if that makes sense. Not like the Tudor- era novels about her I have.
Will finish it, and the other two... just because. (Must satisfy my curiosity.)

Which one are you going to try next? Think I might go for the Mary I book after this.
