Praise for ‘The Boleyn Inheritance’:
‘Philippa Gregory truly is the mistress of the historical novel…It would be hard to make history more entertaining, lively or engaging: the characters truly come alive…This is a reliably breathtaking, suspenseful and imaginative romp from Gregory. Full of all the colours, sights and sounds of the Tudor court, it really transports you to the era. A winning formula.’ Sunday Express
‘This is historical fiction at its best’ Bella
‘A thrilling romantic history’ Eve
‘A fascinating insight into court life…Highly readable and thoroughly enjoyable and no-one writes popular history as well as Philippa Gregory’ Daily Express
‘Philippa Gregory brings the turbulent Tudors to glorious life…Delicious’ Times

What I always enjoy about these books is after finishing them I always make a point to learn more about the characters and Bess was some lady! I didnt know anything about her before.
That being said however, it took at least two full playings of the entire Audiobook, for me to form an opinion on it. At first I was initially quite disappointed with it, I thought it was quite weak. Then I had occasion to listen to it again, and my opinion began to change. Ms. Gregory's trademark for characterisation, had acutely observed the interweaving relationship between Prisoner and Jailor, and the domino effect it had on all main characters involved: - Most notably The Earl of Shrewsbury and The Tudor Court in general.
I found that although it was necessary to have three different readers, it was also a little confusing at times. I think that added to my confusion with this book
This is a good book, although it may take some time to get into.
If you don't buy this book you'll miss probably the greatest story of Mary and Elizabeth ever written.
