The King's Curse

Dissolution. Readers who have enjoyed The Cousins’ War series by Philippa Gregory are those most likely to enjoy devouring the final 600+ pages of the final book titled, The King’s Curse. The plot is set mostly during the reign of Henry VIII, and we learn about this period from the perspective of the protagonist Margaret Pole, whose life is turned upside down multiple times as she falls out of favor or back in based on the whims of the king and the perceptions of her allegiances. Beyond the dissolution of the monasteries during this period, there was an upheaval in all society as old ways were put to rest and new ways required. Through the perspective of Margaret Pole this period comes to life for any reader interested in historical fiction. I was entertained thoroughly from beginning to end.
