Mary Hoffman’s latest novel is set in the Tower of London in the weeks leading up to the execution of Anne Boleyn. It stars young Kit Wagstaffe, adopted son of the Ravenmaster, and cleverly mixes real life events with a skilfully imagined story of intrigue and magic. Figures familiar from history lessons are made vivid, breathing characters in this exciting story and though we know how it ends for Anne readers will be moved and saddened viewing events through Kit’s eyes. This is proof of historical fiction’s power to grip and entertain.
