Click for availability and more information The Boleyn Inheritance, by Philippa Gregory

Philippa Gregory has created yet another vivid and very readable portrait of Henry VIII's court and times with The Boleyn Inheritance. Gregory has told this story from the perspective of three women who were there - Henry's fourth wife, Bavarian-born Anne of Cleeves, his fifth wife Katherine Howard and Jane Rochford, who was the sister-in-law of his second wife Anne Boleyn. As with her other books about Henry and his family, The Constant Princess, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Queen's Fool and Virgin Lover, Gregory obviously has researched her subject matter so well and written yet another terrifically interesting and compelling story of the court drama and intrigue during Henry VIII's reign. In particular, these three women come alive with Gregory masterful skill and the reader gets yet another "inside look" at Henry VIII's court. This book is highly recommended, especially for those who have enjoyed Gregory's other books.
