I must admit that it has been quite a while since I read this. It was always my favorite biography of Anne Boleyn - I thought it brought her to life more than most that I have read. Bruce has some very interesting speculations and insights. I was quite impressed at the care she took in placing certain incidents which other writers have inserted, apparently almost at random, during or after Anne's life. The prime example is the conversation between Henry VIII and Jane Seymour regarding their future children - this is often placed after Anne's imprisonment or death, but Bruce carefully locates it before any accusations were even made against Anne.
This has now be superseded by Eric Ives' The Life and Death of Anne Boleyn , but it is still very much worth reading. Ives himself complimented it as a good "traditionalist" biography.

This biography is detailed and enjoyable and although largely traditional in it's assessment is one of the best biographies of Anne Boleyn. Not only does set the scene beautifully bu she seems to make an effort to understand her subject so what we have is little a more rounded interpretation which is rare with Anne.
Overall, an excellent biography and worth reading or adding to your collection.
