I have a hard time reading Christian historical fiction because I usually find it boring and badly written. This book is neither. Sandra Byrd writes in such a way that you can really feel the setting and understand the characters. The description was real, and Meg was easy to relate to. I'm always interested in Anne Boleyn, but I liked this one especially because it shows how she helped to bring about the Reformation in England. From a Christian perspective, reading Anne as a character who is not seen as a scheming slut (as most other secular books about her) was refreshing. The only thing I didn't like is that it's called "A Novel of Anne Boleyn", which it really is, but it's more than that. Meg is not just a side character who observes Anne. She has her own personal struggles and her own life, so I wish that title was just left off, or called "A Novel of Meg Wyatt and Anne Boleyn" or something. Anyways, I recommend this for teens and adults who are interested in historical fiction, particularly the Tudor period mixed with the Reformation. While it does have romance, it is not the focus of the book.

I"m always willing to read anything that focuses on the Tudors and this gives an outside perspective (even if it is fictional) on the path that Anne Boleyn took, or was taken, to her greatest love which ended up being her demise.

A really great novel! I enjoyed every page. If you like Anne Boleyn, the Tudors, or the Elizabethan period of England: check this book out.
