The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy

Summary: Shy, plain Lady Jane Parker feels out of place in Henry VIII's courtly world of glamour and intrigue—until she meets the handsome George Boleyn. Overjoyed when their fathers arrange a match, her dreams of a loving union are waylaid when she meets George's sister, Anne. For George is completely devoted to his sister, and cold and indifferent to his bride. As Anne acquires a wide circle of admirers, including King Henry, Jane's resentment grows. But if becoming Henry's queen makes Anne the most powerful woman in England, it also makes her highly vulnerable. And as Henry, desperate for a male heir, begins to tire of his mercurial wife, the stage is set for the ultimate betrayal. . .
My Thoughts:
All I can say is Jane gave me a major headache reading her story. At times I felt sorry for her but by the 35th chapter.I just wanted it to come an end. I had to take a break while reading this book because of all the hatred and coniving plots to undermind Anne. I came to the conclusion that maybe the Author her self did not have much affection for The Boleyns by the end of the book.
