Jane Rochford was the sister-in-law to Anne Boleyn and Lady of the Bedchamber to Catherine Howard, whom she followed to the scaffold in 1542.

Hers is a life of extraordinary drama as a witness to and participant in the greatest events of Henry's reign. Her supposed part in both Anne Boleyn's and Catherine Howard's downfall has led to her being reviled through the centuries.

In this fascinating biography, Julia Fox repudiates the idea of the infamous Lady Rochford, and Jane emerges as a rather modern woman forced by brutal circumstances to fend for herself in a politically lethal world. Download and start listening now!

    " This book sat on my shelf for a while before I finally picked it up and read it. It took a little while to get into it, but in the end I did find it very interesting. After having read "The Other Boleyn Girl" I was interested to find out what was historical and what was fictional. This book took a very different take on Jane's role in the events surrounding Anne's death. While the book didn't give much information about Jane herself, I did like learning about the historical events surrounding her life. I think it is a fascinating time period and it is very interesting to think about Henry VIII's motivations, though of course this book is not about that. I'll have to find another book that focuses more on Henry VIII. "

    " I wasn't really in-depth on my English history when I started to read this book. It would appear that the author is making some assumptions that may or may not hold water with other historians since it it seems there is little documented evidence about Jane Boleyn's role in, first, the Anne Boleyn affair and death and, second, in Catherine Parr's. BTW, Jane Boleyn was Anne's sister-in-law, not her sister and it was her husband that Anne was supposed to be having an affair with and who was killed with Anne - supposedly based on Jane Boleyn's accusations. However, it was a good book with some interesting assumptions. History is fascinating and this is another look at a woman who may have been seriously maligned by others and may not ruly have been the evil sister-in-law that others have made her out to be. "

    " Pretty good read, but find Jane is just as mysterious as always. "

    " The title of this book is misleading. Jane Boleyn is lagrely absent from the historical record, and she is far from the central character in this book. The author describes events in Jane's lifetime, and then tosses in an aside such as, "Jane was probably present for this." Lady Rochford was famous for selling out her husband George Boleyn and her sister-in-law Anne Boleyn, but this book didn't even make her the main character during this period. It's a well-written history, but I was expecting it to be more about Lady Rochford. "
