Summ .. summ ... Summer reading

Looking for something good to read ... something you want to put in the bag to take to the pool or the beach  ...I recommend  The Last Boleyn is by Karen Harper.  This is a wonderful historical novel about Mary Boleyn, elder sister of Anne Boleyn.   Mary's life is far less known than her sister, who married Henry VIII,  was the mother of Elizabeth I, and was put to death on trumped up charges.

Mary was Henry's mistress but she was a survivor. She survived an arranged marriage, court intrigues and politics, and she eventually married for love.    The Last Boleyn was published in paperback (Three River Press: $16.00.)
