The Other Boleyn Girl

672 pages; Touchstone
"Gregory is one of my favorite authors," says Lawrence. "I've always loved history, and she makes it...salacious." Narrated by Anne Boleyn's sister Mary—who managed to keep her head—Gregory's best-seller takes a new look at the oft-told story of the loves of Henry VIII and the political and religious intrigues and rivalries that roiled not just life in the English court but the whole of Europe.
