The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory

Read and reviewed in February, 2010. Released later.

I just finished it the other day. A fascinating glimpse into the intrigues of King Henry VIII's court. According to my own Wikipedia research, Ms. Gregory took some liberties regarding the behavior of and accusations against Anne Boleyn and her brother, and with the activities and whereabouts of Mary Boleyn Carey Stafford (she had been exiled from the court, never to return, and did not witness Anne's execution.) However, that being said, it was still an interesting story.
