Philippa Gregory
I'm just reading 'The Boleyn Inheritance,' which deals with Lady Jane Rochford - wife of George Boleyn and sister-in-law to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second queen. The book deals with the years from 1539 to 1542, and the short reigns of Anne of Cleves and Katherine Howard.

Like all Philippa Gregory's books, it's a real page-turner, which manages to bring the Tudor court to vivid life. Gregory obviously has a real affection for her leading characters, and her attention to historical detail is so good you could use these novels to teach Tudor history.

Have you read any of Philippa Gregory's books? If you have, what's your favourite? It's a close call, but my favourite is 'The Other Boleyn Girl.' I love it because it concentrates on someone other than the royal family. Not much is generally known about Mary Boleyn, Anne's sister who warmed the sheets for when Anne became Henry's queen, but this novel gives a plausible version of events in Gregory's inimitable style.
