introduction. The book is the story of two sisters told in two
different time periods, with another novel being told in turns as
well. That doesn't make sense when I explain it, but once you get into
the book, it's easy to follow.
I finished it a week ago, and I might have been able to write more then, but oh well. Read it, you won't regret it.

I started reading The Constant Princess because I loved The Other Boleyn Girl,
but I quit reading 160 pages in because I couldn't stand it any
longer. It was a glorified romance novel. Nothing like the other book
at all. Even though I knew she was changing history to tell the story
of Mary Boleyn, you could believe the motivations behind the
characters' actions. I found her characterization of Katherine of
Aragon to be overly simplistic and saintly.
