"The Other Boleyn Girl' is one of the few books that I can read all night long. I do read alot and most fiction authors with a few exceptions tend to bore me to death. I happened to come along this jewel while I was traveling from Louisana all the way back home to Tennessee.

The main narrator of the book is Mary Boleyn, and yes while a work of fiction, there is alot of historical fact within the book, believe me, I started to research once I had put the book down for a while. It takes you through her journey in life, from the tender age of thirteen when she was married to William Carey, until she became the mistress of King Henry and bore him two children, all the while, her older sister was scheming to win over the King's heart and to eventually become the Queen of England.

In all would I recommend this book to others, most definitely. It is now being passed around within my family and we all are book-a-holics. I would not recommend this book for anyone that is younger than fourteen due to some of the content within the book and how it is presented. I would say that the target audience that the writer was aiming for is women and those with romantic souls, even those who live a tragic love story and historical settings. All in all, I give this book an A+ for being able to want me to read more of it.
