The Queen's Lady by Barbara Kyle

This was a case of the cover looked good, so I bought it. I generally enjoy stories set in the time of King Henry VIII and his many wives. This story centres around Honour Larke, a young girl who becomes a ward of Sir Thomas More and eventually becomes a lady in waiting to Queen Catherine of Aragon. I found this book highly readable (if somewhat implausible as to what happens to Honor over the course of her life). It's a book that is good enough to escape into for an afternoon, just don't take it too seriously.
