In this “energetic” (Kirkus Reviews) re-creation of Anne Boleyn’s tragic life—and death—Robin Maxwell offers a pitch-perfect version of a bawdy and exuberant time filled with lust, betrayal, love, and murder.

When the young Queen Elizabeth I is entrusted with Anne Boleyn’s secret diary, she discovers a great deal about the much-maligned mother she never knew. And on learning the truth about her lascivious and despotic father, Henry VIII, she vows never to relinquish control to any man. But this avowal doesn’t prevent Elizabeth from pursuing a torrid love affair with her horsemaster, Robin Dudley—described with near-shocking candor—as too are Anne’s graphic trysts with a very persistent and lustful Henry.

Blending a historian's attention to accuracy with a novelist’s artful rendering, Maxwell weaves compelling descriptions of court life and devastating portraits of actual people into her naughty, page-turning tale. The result is a masterpiece of historical fiction so prophetic of our time that one would think it were ripped from today’s headlines.

    " So far so good. I'm about 3/4 of the way through it. I love books set in that time period if you haven't noticed. :) A friend gave me a large bag of books like this. I've almost finished the bag. There were between 10 and 15 of these type books. :) "

    " Big fan of this book. I like historical books about King Henry and Anne Boleyn but some of them seem redundant. This one I really liked! "

    " I liked the way this book read...Elizabeth as an adult, and reading the diary from her mother. She learns to know her mother better and understand her. Even though it's fiction, it would have been nice if this had happened. Wonderful book! "

    " This was a cleverly written book-- Queen Elizabeth is handed a secret diary of her mothers and as she reads it, she learns who her mother truly was and that she really loved Elizabeth. Creatively weaves some history and fiction together to show you a softer side of Queen Elizabeth, and let's you "see" what Anne Boleyn was "truly" like. By the end of the book, I felt sorry for Anne but admired her strength, and enjoyed how the story showed what Elizabeth based some of her decisions on. Great read! "
