Sarah’s review of To Die For: A Novel of Anne BoleynIt is the story of Anne Boleyn told through the eyes of her friend and confidante, Meg Wyatt but Meg is much more than just a narrator. She is a complex and engaging character with her own intriguing story to tell and I found myself drawn to her from the first page. Through Meg, the Anne that emerges is a remarkable woman, witty and determined but not without faults. I was unable to put the book down, as I was desperate to find out how things would work out for Meg and whether or not her fate would mirror that of her childhood friend — the queen. The story is beautifully written and on several occasions reduced me to tears as I felt so much a part of the lives of these two amazing women. It is also very well researched, always a plus in my eyes! The novel has a strong religious element but not one that I found overpowering.
