I have read and listened to various titles by the author, not in any kind of order. "The Other Boleyn Girl" was especially good.

The Henry VIII section of Tudor history is like standing on the side of the road, watching a horrific accident as it happens. And the women who are blamed for and deal with Henry's inadequacies, pampered upbringing, and apparently flawed genetic make-up can be rough.

So--to a story of a young woman who does not get treated especially poorly by men (comparatively speaking), who marries the man she loves and has 14 (!) children, but deals with this earlier Henry's inadequacies, his spoiled flibbertigibbet wife, AND the Wars of the Roses is satisfying. The idea that she is able to predict the future is pretty effectively dowsed by the character herself. And the author stops the story before her husband and one son are beheaded and she is accused of witchcraft.

This audio cd is damaged. Disc 4 & 5 would not play at all. I emailed the library and told them . I had to check the book out and will be hard for me as I work from home and don't really have time to read but do listen to audio books while I work. I am very disappointed as the story was just starting to get interesting at the end of disc 3 when this happened.
