King Henry VIII, notorious for his adultery and indiscretions, took interest in Mary immediately. Whether interested in the rumors of her previous royal fling or interested in her herself, the King began courting her. Soon, the two were caught up in a very public affair. Though it was never confirmed, some historians believe that at least one, if not both of Mary Boleyn’s children were fathered by Henry. Her firstborn was a son, a boy she named Henry, though his last name was Carey after her husband

Rare book

We hear so much about Anne very little about her older sister Mary the king's mistress. Very sympathetically written, given Mary's reputation in the French court, and the author tries to not speculate too much when it comes to what's true or not. Written from a historic perspective, this is not a novel, but an essay on someone we know so little about, but played a large part in the life of Henry VIII

I just completed this book the other day and was sad that it was over. The good news was that it was a pleasurable read. It really helped to give more information on Mary to make her less of a mystery and more well rounded as a person than a lot of the other non-fictions I've previously read allow. I liked how she gave all the pros and cons regarding the paternity of her children and the different schools of thought on that subject. All in all I am glad I've added this book to my collection.

I am a student at Olivet Nazarene University working for her history degree and am writing on Mary Boleyn and she might have been used as a pawn by her father to gain politic favor to Henry VIII and status in Henry's court all while Mary was Henry's favorite woman at the time. This book has helped me greatly on where I would need to start and how much further research I would need to do in order to get a grasp of who Mary was. This book has just also been helpful in telling me just who she was and what her position was throughout her life in the best detail it can give me. I am also glad that this is one of the two books that I have found that are written entirely about Mary Boleyn and not Anne Boleyn with having only mentioned Mary in Anne's life or in the notes of Anne's biographies.

I was excited at the prospect of a new Tudor era book being
out, and the first nonfiction one about Mary Boleyn. For that
fact, I enjoyed it also because it didn't read like some
literature for a college student to do a thesis on.
However, I did get bogged down in the chapter about whether or
not Mary's two children were Henry VIII's, and she flip-flopped
around on what the answer might be (talk about beating a dead
horse!) & then next thing I know she's talking later in the
book as if it is an established fact that they were in his.
Also, there was much said about her sister Anne, that if
someone picked up the book to read in the mid-part, they might
assume the book was about Anne Boleyn. But I realize that her
sister's destiny was closely woven with Anne's. Despite all
of that, it was an enjoyable book & worth the cost. I am
planning on purchasing the other books by this author.

As a lover of history, I loved this book for the reality and discription of events and the historical facts to back everything up in the book!! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Well written book about Anne's sister, Mary. Not in novel form, and very informational. This gives an insight into Mary's "other activities" as well as some of those women in her social circle.

I can't remember if I found out or not in this book but I always wondered if Mary Boleyn had been at her sister Anne's execution. I saw the movie of t"The Other Boleyn Girl" and she was there but I have searched and think that this was a mistake that Hollywood made or perpetuated.
I ordered this book thinking it would be an accurate account of Mary Boleyn.I have to say I was very disappointed. I read it in a couple of hours, the print was huge & not many pages long. The information merely repeated throughout the book.Not worth $20 that's for sure.
