A fairly raunchy book about Ann Boleyn's sister, Mary. She was mistress to King Henry the 8th before Ann set her sights on him. The story is about both sisters and their life in court, affairs with the King, family battles, and then Ann's marriage, betrayals, and demise. Mary is a pawn who eventually finds some happiness. The movie was actually less graphic than the book.
