What would you sacrifice for your best friend? Would you die for her?

Meg Wyatt has been Anne Boleyn’s best friend since they were girls growing up on neighboring manors in Kent. And it’s no surprise that when Anne’s status starts to rise, she takes Meg along for the ride.

Attending court, attention from the king, it all seems glamorous at first, but then it turns deadly.

I really enjoyed ‘To Die For’. There was a lot of history, even though this was a fictitious tale. Much of the stuff that was mentioned happened and I thought the characters were very entertaining.

I did, at times, feel slightly bored and I found it easy to put ‘To Die For’ down and stop reading for awhile.

I think ‘To Die For’ is best suited for mature audiences because it has a beheading (if you are at all familiar with Henry VIII’s story, you know what I am talking about), plus it also mentions things that I don’t think would be appropriate for young teens.

I probably enjoyed Meg’s story the most, as I felt for her when certain things occurred. I really liked the Christian story line as well. The difficulties of reformation and getting English translation Bible’s in the churches. It makes me think of how easy it is nowadays to read God’s Word and yet, I sometimes take it for granted.

I find Henry VIII’s story very interesting, therefore it was no surprise the I enjoyed ‘To Die For’. I recommend ‘To Die For’ if you enjoy historical novels.
