This book was a terrible mess Important historical facts were not included or completely disregarded and the whole thing just felt rushed And, wow, what an incredible piece of anti Catholicism not seen in England since the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 I m not exactly sure how to rate this book The author certainly gives a different view of Anne Boleyn than secular history has taught us for nearly 500 years It has intrigued me enough to continue with the series.Note to readers There are many references to a book by a man named Hutchins I was confused by this, as I did not remember that name from Tudor history In the Epilogue, Ms Garrett clarifies that Hutchins was one of the pseudonyms used by early Bible translator William Tyndale, I m not exactly sure how to rate this book The author certainly gives a different view of Anne Boleyn
