Three women share one fate: the Boleyn Inheritance.

From the bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl comes a novel about three women whose positions brought them wealth, power, deceit, and terror in England after the death of Anne Boleyn.

Anne of Cleves must literally save her neck in a court ruled by a deadly game of politics and the terror of an unpredictable and vengeful king. Her Boleyn Inheritance: accusations and false witnesses. Katherine Howard catches the king’s eye within moments of arriving at court, setting in motion a dreadful machine of politics, intrigue, and treason that she does not understand. Her Boleyn Inheritance: the threat of the axe. Jane Rochford’s name is a byword for malice, jealousy, and twisted lust throughout Europe. Her Boleyn Inheritance: a fortune and a title in exchange for her soul.

The Boleyn Inheritance is Gregory at her spellbinding best.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fascinating account…harrowing…If only grade-school history books were written so vividly.” 

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Gregory’s accounts of events are accurate enough to be persuasive, her characterizations modern enough to be convincing. Rich in intrigue and irony, this is a tale where readers will already know who was divorced, beheaded or survived, but will savor Gregory’s sharp staging of how and why.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Allowing her characters to speak in first person, Gregory imbues history with realism and human drama. As in the finest of historical fiction, she doesn’t skimp on history but infuses it with humanity.” 

    RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars 

  • “Gregory’s knowledge of the period, combined with her novelistic skill, allows her to view this grim tale through the eyes of the three women: wily, experienced Jane; naïve, sensible Anne; and vain, greedy young Kitty. Their first-person accounts are convincing and shockingly self-serving.”

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " I don't usually like to read books that jump from person to person....but this one was well done...there were very obvious differences in the personalities and speech of the three women so it was a delight to read. "

    " As good as the first! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Christina Bowers | 1/20/2014

    " Once I finally got adjusted to some of the annoying traits of the three female characters in this book, the story intricately unfolded and kept my interest. I couldn't put it down for the last 100 pages. It's nowhere close to "The Other Boleyn Girl," but still a great read. "
