The sequel to Hilary Mantel's 2009 Man Booker Prize winner and New York Times bestseller, Wolf Hall delves into the heart of Tudor history with the downfall of Anne Boleyn Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down. Over three terrifying weeks, Anne is ensnared in a web of conspiracy, while the demure Jane Seymour stands waiting her turn for the poisoned wedding ring. But Anne and her powerful family will not yield without a ferocious struggle. Hilary Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies follows the dramatic trial of the queen and her suitors for adultery and treason. To defeat the Boleyns, Cromwell must ally with his natural enemies, the papist aristocracy. What price will he pay for Anne's head?

So well-written

I hung on Hilary Manel's every word in this sequel to Wolf Hall. Her writing is sublime: I am in awe of her ability to combine luscious creative writing with the dry facts of history. The Tudors are a particularly interesting period in Royal history, but also well known. The strength of this book is that it leans towards Anne's perspective and her vulnerability. As Mantel unravels all the details of events, I found myself deperately hoping that she would somehow manage to change history. You know what end it coming, but for a while, in the whirl of this fantastic book, there seems the impossible possibility of salvation.
