The Other Boleyn Girl By Philippa Gregory

I enjoyed it very much since it was historical fiction about Anne Boleyn's sister Mary in King Henry VIII court.
It is told from Mary Boleyn's point of view which is usually regarded as a side character, here she was the main.
How she was the King's mistress for quite some time and bore him children.
This was my first book by this author, but her style captivated me and had me asking for more! Very nicely written !!!

The Barnes & Noble Sypnosis..
Two sisters competing for the greatest prize: the love of a king
When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her familys ambitious plots as the kings interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king, and take her fate into her own hands.
A rich and compelling tale of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her own heart.
