Back in the bloodstained carriage, the wheels finally freed from the mud, the women chattered nervously for the rest of the journey. They all knew that England had become a dangerous place for innocent travelers after the second year of Edward's regin. Daughter of York by Anne Easter Smith pg. 64
I am just starting this book after reading the review of Amy from Passages of the Past on Anne Easter Smith's The King's Grace. I think I have to say what immediately attracted me to this book was the beautiful cover. I bought it a few months ago, and now anxious to read it.

Henry's one consolation was that etiquette was very clear on the rules of seating at dinner parties, and so he was not forced to actually speak with his future wife during the droning six courses that were meant to celebrate their engagement. He did hazard a look or two, across the long table, at Elizabeth Holland, who was looking radiant and beautiful, though regrettably pristine to his eyes, and whose left hand was now lit up with the pride of Tiffany. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen pg. 160

a view from Anne Boleyn's bedroom in Hever Castle
What a place! It was very emotional for me, in fact even writing about it still is emotional. You can really feel her presence there. Hever is a small cozy Castle nestled in one of the most beautiful spots in Kent. Very out of the way. Phillipa Gregory refers in her book The Other Boleyn Girl how much Mary Boleyn dearly loved Hever and wanted to be there as much as possible. It's understandable, it's so peaceful and beautiful.
We were not allowed to take any pictures inside the Castle, but I couldn't help myself when I was in Anne's bedroom on the 2nd floor. When the guide wasn't looking I hurried and snapped a picture looking out of Anne's bedroom window. It was spine tingling to know that she had stood in the exact same spot as I was looking out of the her window.
I also was able to sneak a picture from the dining room window as well. My daughter got so nervous we would get thrown out she tried to confiscate my camera. I didn't care, this was once in a life time event.
Here is the link to my Hever Castle Photo Album http://s245.photobucket.com/albums/gg58/susiefio/Hever%20Castle/?albumview=slideshow
