COOL QUOTE // The Other Boleyn Girl

“After all, this is our meal ticket and our fortune that we are sending to his bed, hardly a girl at all.  Come, child!  You have work to do for us Boleyns, and we are counting on you!”

— George Boleyn, to his sisters Mary and Anne

I’m currently working my way through The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory, and I’m having a hard time putting it down!  Full review to come but I thought this line spoke volumes about the perceived role of women during the Tudor era (plus a shitload of other eras, arguably).  Anyone read this book?  Would love your thoughts!
