I loved this book so much, I can't wait until I read it again some other time. The way the story unfolded and how it was told through Mary's eyes was great. It took me some time to finish, not too sure why, but I thought it was amazing. I watched the movie before this and I loved it as well. I had no idea it was based on the book, and not the just on Henry and one of his, what was it, six wives? It is definitely on my faves list.
