    1. Why did I love this book so much? Apart from the fact that Gemma Lawrence is a magical writer and you can feel the love for her subject oozing through the words, apart from the clever and subtle use of intricate research, it's because it shows the influences in Anne Boleyn's early life that made her the person she became, and a view of her other than the one so often portrayed. In La Petite Boulain, Anne is not the selfish, ambitious ice queen of Phillipa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl, for ins [...]

    2. Interesting StoryI liked this story. It was very interesting to read and I kept turning the pages, the only thing I found a bit difficult to get through was it was a little wordy at times.

    3. Captivating readI love Tudor history, and enjoy going back into the past via a good book. Le Petite Boulaine was one of the best I’ve read. Anne Boleyn remains one of English history’s most enigmatic and intriguing characters, so this book, which outlines her early life was a real treat. Written from the first person point of view, Gemma Lawrence allows us to get under the skin of Ann, to know her innermost feelings and desires, especially the forces that influence her early life, for both g [...]

    4. This is written with such passion, and is reminiscent of Jean Plaidy in many ways. I was distracted, however, by several errors in spelling and punctuation, as well as a few strange typos. It could benefit from more meticulous editing. I appreciate the vivid storytelling and the loving research that went into this book, and it deserves to have those glitches cleared up to make it as good as it can be.

    5. AmazingCouldn't put it down kept reading till early hours I haven't read any of these authors books before but will be looking out for more

    6. Immensely enjoyable book on Anne Boleyn's formative years superbly written by Gemma Lawrence, i am eagerly awaiting the sequel.

    7. Prologue - The reader is introduced to Anne Boleyn awaiting execution; imprisoned in the tower of London on 17th May 1536. Not for the first time in Henry VIII's reign, "around the throne thunder rolls".Anne announces chillingly "I am not alone. Ghosts and spies surround me. I cannot run, nor hide. Shapes seem to move in the darkness about me. The walls of this, my most opulent prison, are filled with the ghostly faces of those who were here before me. Their hollow faces stare out at me, watchin [...]

    8. The author clearly has great fondness for her subject and the young Anne Boleyn is portrayed in a very sympathetic light. I don't know enough about her early life to judge whether she really was the paragon of virtue portrayed, but it's recorded that she was very accomplished and intelligent and those qualities stood her in good stead when she set her heart on Henry VIII. The author's style is polished and charming and she's obviously done a great deal of research. My only criticism is that some [...]

    9. this read more like a non-fiction book than fiction. i know it must have been difficult to imagine what Anne's life was life pre-henry, but there wasn't a lot of imagining going on. it was just pages of descriptions of clothes and food. they were beautiful descriptions, but it took more than half the book for something to actually happen. i am going to read the 2nd though.

    10. Excellent rendering of Anne BoleynThis is a very good book and well written in my opinion. I am looking forward to reading anything else by this author. I feel like I knew Anne personally through its pages.

    11. ExcellentGreat historical fiction, highly recommend if you a fan of anything Tudor. A fascinating look at Anne Boleyn before she was Queen Anne.

    12. I am enjoying this author very much! Her books are well written and so interesting. She really makes the characters come alive!This book, #1 of 3 about Anne Boleyn, is so good!

    13. Excellent readI thought this was a wonderful account of Anne's early life. Every other book I've read glosses over this important time.

    14. Interesting takeIt was an interesting point of view, although slightly more fictional than historically based. Will have to continue the series to see where the author intends to go with this.

    15. Anne Boleyn in her own words as you’ve never read her before I write this review as part of Rosie’s Book Review Team. Thanks to Rosie Amber and to Gemma Lawrence for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review.I’ve been reading more historical novels of recent and I appreciate the mix of skills their authors require. There has to be a lot of research for the novel to be grounded sufficiently in the era and not seem a total flight of fancy. But ensuring that [...]

    16. La Petite Boulain is the first of a series of novels that will follow the life of Anne Boleyn (this is Above all Others; The Lady Anne Book 1) by Gemma Lawrence, author of The Bastard Princess and The Heretic Heir, both about the daughter of Henry VIII who would become Queen Elizabeth.Anne Boleyn has been the subject of many books, either about her or about the Tudors. I counted 45 on alone, by some impressive historical fiction authors such as Antonia Frasier, Philippa Gregory, Jean Plaidy, an [...]

    17. Sweet account of what like may have been like for the child and young Lady Anne Boleyn. Pleasant enough, but remember it is fiction placed in historical times. No resources or analysis and nary a foot note. Enjoyable read, but I still believe the Tutor books by Alison Weir are more credible and offer alternate verifiable explanations of the people and events in the reign if Henry VIII.

    18. 4.5*The story begins in the Tower of London where Anne Boleyn awaits her fate, contemplating those who died in the manner that now lies ahead for her. In return for HenryVIII’s promise of protection for her daughter, Anne signs her life away, admitting to all she is falsely accused of. Sleepless, determined not to panic and to die with dignity, Anne lets her thoughts wander back to her happy and carefree childhood at Hever Castle.It’s longer than I care to remember since I read a book about [...]

    19. Read this seriesThe author has a really neat way of writing that really makes you feel the time, place, and life of Anne more than any other books I have read on herey are so well done in making her real. Really worth reading this series.

    20. Four point five starsLa Petite Boulain is historical fiction about the young years of the life of Anne Boleyn. The book opens in 1536 with adult Anne held prisoner in the Tower of London awaiting the final judgement on her life. Queen for only three years she is the scapegoat taking the blame for the fall of Katherine of Aragon, the fate of the princess Mary, the church reforms and the dissolution of the monasteries.Surrounded by the eyes and ears of her enemy Anne looks back on her life, to whe [...]

    21. More historical fiction about La Petite Anne Boulain If you know anything about Henry the VIII, you must know about the woman that brought about the severance of the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England, and the fascinating English bred, but French raised mysterious Anne Bolyne. This is a book about her early life, her parenting, and the educational and social/cultural forces that led her to become the young woman who bewitched a king. It's really quite fascinating and helps one to be [...]

    22. GreatI really enjoyed this book and I look forward to more from this author in future. I to am fascinated by the Tudors and cannot get enough of them. I also like other eras in history from my enjoyment of Jean Plaidy years ago when I read my first historical novel. I would recommend this author to everyone who enjoys historical fiction.

    23. Loved itAmazing author and book, I look forward to the next and any others I can find by G Lawrence I have not already read.
