Interesting Perspective

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.

    Absorbing Read

    Very good book. Once started I could barely put it down. The incredible intrigue and every day life in the court of King Henry VIII is brought to life with every nuance imaginable. One can almost be transported back in time to the age of elegance and beauty in the court itself. Captivating read! Loved it!

    more from this reviewer

    I have read a lot of Tudor history and this was very well researched and written

    The book was well balanced and written. For a biography it is a very easy read. I have read every book I can on Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth and this one had a lot of information I had not seen before. There was no judgement in the writing, just a layout of the facts as we can find them. Thank you for a great book.
