    Fantastic story!

    This book had my attention from the start and never disappointed. I read a lot of Henery VII type novels and this is one of the best with different view and emotionally charged heroine. 4-Stars!

    Good read

    I enjoyed this perspective of the dangerous Tudor court. The 1st person narrative took a bit of getting used to, but brought a vibrancy to the story. One thing that disappointed was the authors use of the word 'cute' towards the beginning of the book- im pretty sure the word was not in use then....

    more from this reviewer

    for fans of the Henry VIII saga

    Mary Howard would do anything to gain her father's approval. Thus when he directs her to stay near and assist King Henry's latest love Anne Boleyn, she does. Doing this makes Mary feel bad as she feels for the kind hearted Queen Catherine rather than the arrogant Anne, but she needs daddy's appreciative thanks so she obeys his wishes.

    Over the years, Mary finds the monarch's court filled with backstabbing as one queen replaces another. She hides her heart from everyone out of fear anyone who knows who she loves will use it as a weapon including her worshipped father the Duke of Norfolk, who would disown his daughter as he has ambitious plans for his daughter.

    Using Mary Howard as a lens to look deeply at the court of King Henry VIII and his myriad of queens, readers obtain a somewhat fresh perspective on what has to be the zillionth historical fictional account of the monarch and his merry wives. Mary is an intriguing narrator who, until she finds love, lives to obtain her father's approval. Though very well written with a fascinating lead, only fans of the Henry VIII saga will enjoy Secrets of the Tudor Court.
