Description

The number-one New York Times best-seller from “the queen of royal fiction” (USA Today) Philippa Gregory is a rich, compelling novel of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue surrounding the Tudor court of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and the infamous Boleyn family.

When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of 14, she catches the eye of the handsome and charming Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family’s ambitious plots as the king’s interest begins to wane, and soon, she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. With her own destiny suddenly unknown, Mary realizes she must defy her family and take fate into her own hands. 

With more than one million copies in print and adapted for the big screen, The Other Boleyn Girl is a riveting historical drama. It brings to light a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived a treacherous political landscape by following her heart.

wonderfully spoken

I've read this book numerous times before, as it's my favorite. The narrator does a superb job at the task of expressing what the characters are feeling and conveying. hands down wonderful.

narrator was excellent!

The story never had a dull moment, very informative and we'll written. However, the narration is what really made this story a hit for me!

Susan Lyons soundalike

I have to say this narrator sounds remarkably similar to a previous recording by Susan Lyons, which is not a bad thing. I actually really liked that recording. So, the narration is an A+.

The story? I love it! Drama! Sex! Jealousy! Intrigue! Mystery! Seduction! Romance! It has everything.
It plays fast and loose with real history, but in my opinion, this portrait favors the real Anne Boleyn.

wonderful narration of intriguing story

I enjoyed the novel years ago. This is a very well done audiobook version. I'm glad it's unabridged. The style is historical fiction, so set aside any expectations of exacting attention to detail and just enjoy an interesting perspective on a portion of Tudor times.

Excellent narrative

I love this book and read it many times. I can no longer read and find all too often that the reader is disappointing. not true here.
The reader was just like myself reading it. Fabulous!
