The Boleyn King
Book #45 Read in 2013
The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen
This was a great historical fiction read. I love reading about the Tudors. This book focused more on William as King, but also had his sister Elizabeth at the forefront. In this book, William will soon be of age to take over the throne and he is beginning to really play the political chess game of what country to go to war against and what woman would be most beneficial as a wife.
I enjoyed the writing style of this book and would recommend it, especially to fans of Phillipa Gregory. These historical figures were brought to life in this book and were larger than life. The whole way life was lived at that time was fascinating to read about, especially when it came to the role of women.
I received this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a review.
