To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn

To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn - Sandra Byrd The title of this book really made me nervous, with its (presumed) pun on 20th century slang, but I was pleasantly surprised. It provided a decidedly different (but certainly supported by history) take on Anne Boleyn as religious reformer, rather than just the scheming, ambitious "other woman" who destroyed Henry VIII's first marriage. I don't know if she actually was in love with Henry as portrayed here, and the portrayal may be a bit too sympathetic, but at least I got a sense of her as a human being, as well as her intelligence and motivation for some of the things she did.
