I found this book to be intriguing and felt it offered a different perspective on Jane Rochford. History has alwats protrayed her as an evil traitor, but this book suggests that she was just as much a victum o Henry VIII as her relatives. The book dragged a bit in the middle, but overall an interesting historical perspective.

I considered reading this till I got to the part where it said "born Jane Rochford". ROCHFORD! She was born Jane Parker and only became Jane Rochford when het husband, George Boleyn, was granted the title of Lord Rochford which had previously belonged to his father. The title was given to him because his father was made an earl. She was lucky to still be allowed the name Lady Rochford after her husband's execution.

    Disappointing

    I was really looking forward to finding out more about this interesting woman, however this book greatly disappointed me there. I am about halfway through and am debating whether to finish it or not. Most of the book so far has been about King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn (all information I already knew) with unimpotant mentions of Jane Boleyn thrown in, much of which is only speculation, such as she MAY have been at such and such an event!
    Not impressed.

    Not about Jane. Extremely disappointed!

    Tho well written it was NOT about Jane. Very misleading title. It was about Henry's wives. And if that's what you're interested in reading about there are much better reads than this one. Alison Wier writes excellent bios on the Tudors. SO DOES David Starky (excellent book on henry and his six wives). Buy one of their reads- you won't be disappointed!

    Not such a goo read nor worth your time

    I found this story to a bit disappointing. Since I've been reading plenty of Philippa Gregory novels of the Tudors and other Tudor tales that I was interested in know more about these real characters. So I decided to borrow this audio book from the library. The narration wasn't quite bad, nor excellent either. As for the story it had little explanation about Jane Boleyn's relationship with her husband or of Anne Boleyn. Only about where she was than & what she felt. Which wasn't so enthralling, I just felt that the author could have done more research of the Tudor history. That's just my opinion. This is the first novel of Julia Fox that I've read.
