  1. Got 7/10 not bad, I’m not that keen on fiction books about Anne, the first novel I ever read about her was Plaidy’s Murder Most Royal, I then attempted to read Brief Gaudy Hour but couldn’t finish it, then I read The Concubine my all time fave, must add Dunn’s The Queen Of Subtleties is a scream !

      1. It’s Anne telling her own story through a modern viewpoint, it also has a comical element , in the book she refers to Katherine of Aragon as fat Cath and George her brother or Wyatt is telling her to f…. off! Her father Thomas Boleyn is dad and of course his wife is mum, it’s like reading a modern novel, She tells the story and it’s somewhat entwined with that of Henry V111’s confectioner telling her side, there are records that show the king did have a woman who worked in the kitchens, and made wonderful sculptured designs with marzipan and sugar, possibly meringue, so she tells her story to, it’s a very refreshing take on Anne’s story, you should enjoy it.
