The Other Boleyn Girl

By Philippa Gregory

Reviewed by Julian

If you love historical fiction, then you will love this book. The Other Boleyn Girl is the tragic story of the two most famous sisters in England’s History. One was Mary Boleyn, the mistress to King Henry VIII of England. The other, Anne Boleyn, was his second queen and the mother of Queen Elizabeth I of England. Read as Anne seduces the King of England into deflecting from the Catholic Church and overthrowing his legal wife. This story is a great way to look into the past filled with passion, loyalty, greed, and murder. The Other Boleyn Girl, along with other books by Philippa Gregory, is a wonder to read. I really hope you read this book.
