I hoped for more from this novel, as I'd never read a book focusing on Henry VIII's third wife and mother of his longed-for prince. Unfortunately, the author turned Jane into a very boring character who did little more throughout the book than sew, blush and obsess about her plainness. Only in the last third of the book did the story get mildly interesting.
