February Meeting- The Other Boleyn Girl

Kathryn's pick for February was The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory.

Two sisters competing for the greatest prize: the love of a kingWhen Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family's ambitious plots as the king's interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king, and take her fate into her own hands.
A rich and compelling tale of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue, The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her own heart.

What a great pick!  This book gave us a lot to talk about!  Many girls were intrigued enough with the story line that they researched more about this time period and learned about Henry VIII.  This was a long book, but it keeps your attention throughout.  There is just enough suspense, drama and sex to keep a reader interested!

(I couldn't get the pictures of us this month off my phone for some reason... I'm sure you girls are devastated that I didn't include a picture!) :)
