When the King came riding in on his big, black horse, a murmur wentup, because his tunic was stitched with the words, DECLARE I DARENOT. All the ladies were giggling behind their hands, and I askedMama what it meant. Her face had turned quite pink and she said,"Never mind," so I asked Rosanna later. She told me the wordsmeant the King has a new love, but he dares not say her name. Buteveryone knows her name, of course. It is Anne Boleyn.

Review Text

  • By Rebecca Herman on 29 August 2004

    Elinor Valjean begins her diary in 1525, when she is eleven. As the daughter of a lady-in-waiting to Queen Catherine of England, she has grown up at court. Over the next few years, Elinor describes her daily life living among royalty, and how she eventually becomes a lady-in-waiting to Anne Boleyn. Elinor and her family sympathize with Queen Catherine because of their ties to her. But Anne Boleyn is determined to be queen, and King Henry VIII is determined to divorce Catherine, because she has failed to provide him with a son and is now too old to have any more children. But as Elinor's life becomes happy, as she grows up, falls in love, marries, and has children, Anne's only becomes worse, as she ends up disappointing Henry by failing to provide a living son. This is my favorite book from the My Story series, and I highly recommend it to readers who are interested in the Tudor era or who enjoy historical fiction in diary form.

    A different take on a familiar story. Not sure of how it is done but think that perhaps the younger readers might enjoy it

    Anyone who has read the Tudor court or Cousins War novels by Philippa Gregory will recognise the format they know and love here. The format (diary of someone close to the action) is absolutely identical to, say, the Queen's Fool in which a fictitious courtier plots the rise and fall of Queen Mary 1. In this case we are following the well worn tale of the rise and fall of Anne Boleyn. As in Gregory, Catherine is mostly pretty saintly while Anne is a scheming bitch who gets a lot of what was coming to her, although here too Prince follows Gregory in maintaining that Anne was innocent of most of the charges laid against her.The tone of the novel doesn't change as the narrator ages a decade, she seems to be permanently naive, not o say bland, even after a decade at court. Having said that, it seems to be at about the right level for my own 11 year old, and anything that gets my kids reading (rather than watching pop videos on youtube) can't be all bad. I just hope Philippa Gregory got a cut though, as what we have here s basically a rewrite of The Other Boleyn Girl with some of the adult bits taken out, or at least glossed over.

    I bought this with the intention of adding it to my year 6 classroom resources for a cross-curricular unit on Tudors. While it contains some interesting perspectives on what court life might have been like during the period, it lacks tension and pace, and is therefore unlikely to capture or sustain the interest of young readers. It might be useful as an additional book for more able readers who are interested and already well-informed about the Tudor period, but it won't work as 'hook' to get children interested in Tudors.
