Book Review: “The Other Boleyn Girl”
Reviewed by Taylor Petit
The Boleyns’ only interest is power. They know that the best way to climb the ranks is by giving the king what Queen Catherine could not: a son. Mary and Anne Boleyn are forced into becoming mistresses to their king. Betrayal, heartbreak and jealousy heighten their sibling rivalry. How far will their family’s wants take them?
The novel was intriguing. I would highly recommend it to mature readers because of sexual content. It is also a good book for those interested in history or scandal.
