On Feb. 11, the book club will review The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. It is a rich and compelling tale of love, sex, ambition, and intrigue. The Other Boleyn Girl introduces a woman of extraordinary determination and desire who lived at the heart of the most exciting and glamorous court in Europe and survived by following her own heart. When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of 14, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family's ambitious plots as the king's interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king and take her fate into her own hands. The book is available at the Bolton Free Library.
