I'm stuck in Tudor England!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm working on my master's degree, but I didn't take any classes this summer. Yippee, me thinks, a great opportunity to read! (Kids? what kids?)

Anyway, it all started when my mil gave me The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory. Than I also read The Queen's Fool and The Virgin's Lover by Ms. Gregory. Then I moved on to Virgin and The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell. There was another book in the middle that I forget the title of.

Eeep. Am I obsessed? My dh thinks so.

Okay, here's one to feed your obsession: Kathryn in the Court of Six Queens, by Anne Merton Abbey.

Oh, and I couldn't slog through The Virgin's Lover -- very dull. I did enjoy The Other Boleyn Girl, though -- first I'd heard that Anne had had a seriously deformed child and that the miscarriage was the direct cause of the accusation of witchcraft.

The Amazon reviews for KITCOSQ do a good, fair job of pointing out the book's strengths and weaknesses.
