TLC Book Tours Book Review: The Phantom Tree

About The Phantom Tree

Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Graydon House; Original edition (September 1, 2018)
Browsing an antiques shop in Wiltshire, Alison Bannister stumbles across a delicate old portrait—identified as the doomed Tudor queen, Anne Boleyn. Except Alison knows better. The subject is Mary Seymour, the daughter of Katherine Parr, who was taken to Wolf Hall in 1557 and presumed dead after going missing as a child. And Alison knows this because she, too, lived at Wolf Hall and knew Mary…more than four hundred years ago.
The painting of Mary is more than just a beautiful object for Alison—it holds the key to her past life, the unlocking of the mystery surrounding Mary’s disappearance and how Alison can get back to her own time. To when she and Mary were childhood enemies yet shared a pact that now, finally, must be fulfilled, no matter the cost.
Bestselling author of House of Shadows Nicola Cornick offers a provocative alternate history of rivals, secrets and danger, set in a time when a woman’s destiny was determined by the politics of men and luck of birth. A spellbinding tale for fans of Kate Morton, Philippa Gregory and Barbara Erskine.

Review: I have pretty much been reading historical novels that have a past and present thing going on with them. This is apparently a thing with historical novels these days.

But when you bring Henry VIII into the mix, you have story that brings the squees from me.

It involves a portrait of Anne Boleyn, but is it really Anne?  Could it be Mary Seymour the daughter of Katherine Parr?


Oh and wait...there's a time slip too.

Jumps up and down

This book just brought me so much joy, start to finish! If you love Tudor fiction this book has to be on your must read list.

Rating: 5 flowers
