The reason why I couldn't finish is Garrett's character of Anne Boleyn. entertaining, but also challenges and grows my faith. In the Shadow of Lions is such a novel, and the story has stayed with me long after I finished the book.

The reason why I couldn't finish is Garrett's character of Anne Boleyn. While I am glad, very glad, that a fictional writer makes use of Anne and religion, making Anne into a naive, innocent form a family who think thier elder daughter (Mary) is a slut, is a little much for me. Sorry.

Ginger Garrett takes a subject that we've all studied about at one time or another in school (whether or not we remember it is another matter. ahem! I admit, my memory was sketchy at best. I'll just chalk it up to too many diaper changes!). The story of Anne Boleyn and her marriage to Henry VIII has been written and played out on the screen hundreds of times, and usually, Anne is portrayed as a conniving, manipulative witch. Garrett turns history on its head by giving Anne heart and faith.

For the Scribe: When we meet someday, and you finish your book on my life, please be gentle. Whether I needed to travel to London to walk through the events in the novel or go away for a long week to write, they supported me, keeping the family running smoothly. I tried to make you quite dashing. If you want to do the same for me, that would be appreciated. Mitch, your quiet strength gave me courage. My parents did without sleep to watch the kids and made endless stacks of Saturday-morning pancakes.

Thank you Ginger Garrett! I will definitely read other books by this author. Of course we have all studied the reformation (at least briefly) in school. However, until I read this book, I had no idea how cruel the times were for those who wished to break away from the teachings of the church and do something as ordinary seeming as reading the Bible for themselves! We have been taught to see Anne Boleyn as a schemer who wanted power at all costs. This story indicates that perhaps she was motivated by something else. I can easily recommend this book to all.

In Ginger Garrett’s historical novel In the Shadow of Lions, a tale is spun about two women, one driven to seek God and the other to champion the translation of a book that could change the world and set the Reformation on fire. This story weaves fantasy, history, and romance into elements of intrigue and adventure. The novel offers stories of three different characters: Anne Boleyn, Rose, and the Scribe.

With 3 plot lines to follow there should have been more to pull it together but there wasn't. This book has a subtitle claiming it is a "Novel of Anne Boleyn," and yet it doesn't live up to that promise. Anne's story is told in a shallow manner that does little to convey how she ended up in such a tragic place.

The author's reason for writing seems to be to convey the lengths people went to in order to be allowed to read the Bible, something we take for granted today without appreciating the people who went to their deaths to secure this freedom. Okay, fine, but I fail to see what this had to do with Anne Boleyn who carried the Hutchin's Bible in this story but was too afraid to open it.

As a historical novel this book fell short in many ways. The timeline was skewed in some areas for no apparent reason. Anne's story was never fully explored. Margaret and Rose were characters with no real ending. One moment Margaret is a supporter of Hutchins the next she is condemning Rose for having a copy of his bible, but there is no explanation given for her change.

The whole "Bridget/the Scribe/Crazy Betty" side of the book used to tell this story is bizarre and confusing. There is nothing here that tied it all together which I found very frustrating. The reader is left dangling with no resolution to anything that was hinted at in the book. What happened to David? How did Bridget end up in this hospice alone and dying---the best money could buy and yet with a Nurse Ratched in charge? By the end I came to the conclusion that the whole story was the product of Bridget's morphine addled brain sorting through the inaccurate things she had learned in some college history class.

Perhaps it will all be sorted out in the promised future books the author mentions in her notes at the end. I doubt though that I will invest time and money in finding out if this is true. Perhaps if the author had stayed with her original premise of those who martyred themselves for the Bible instead of bringing Anne Boleyn into it she would have had a better story to tell.

I started reading what I thought would be the typical historical novel about Anne Boleyn, but it turned out to be so much more than that! It cast Anne in a new light as a victim rather than the seductress who would be queen. It's hard to understand now how little control women had over their lives, especially the women of noble birth. They were used as pawns or as a means to political gain. Other than Anne, however, it also showed Sir Thomas Moore in a whole new light, to me anyway. I knew little about him, other than his writings (Utopia) and his devotion to the Catholic church. But there was such a dark side to him that it far overshadowed his "saintly" side. His cruelty and his striving to keep the population in total ignorance of what the Bible was really all about in order to perpetuate the domination of the Church over the people, was despicable. If I was a Catholic today, I would be ashamed of the fact that he is a saint. That will probably get me a lot of hateful comments, but it's true at least from my point of view. Ginger Garret did a masterful job of creating this story while remaining as true as possible to the historical facts. I would really recommend this book.

I found the writing quality and style to be quite good. I found myself drawn to the story; it was very intriguing. The writer's point of view is absolutely fascinating and showed me a totally different perspective of Anne Boleyn. I enjoyed the other characters in the book as well and especially her ability to show the different sides of More and Wolsey. This book was quite clean, although the content is not for a young audience. I think that most of all I was really impressed to find a christian author with such talent for words. Thank you Ginger Garrett! I will definitely read other books by this author.

I enjoyed this book very much. It tells about Anne Boleyn and her part in the reformation. Of course we have all studied the reformation (at least briefly) in school.

This book is a wonderful follow-up to Wolf Hall. It shows a different side of information on Ann Boleyn, a woman often vilified in literature. For novelists of history,one must tread lightly to avoid exposing one side of a person's character and personality at the expense of their more complicated facets. I appreciated the vast research by the author of how people lived, their interpersonal relationships, and the politics of the day, and putting it all together into a book that was hard to put down.

Gripping historical romance with supernatural elements, centered around two women during the reign of Henry VIII, one of whom is Anne Boleyn. It presents a different view of Anne Boleyn's character than usual. Fascinating book - I couldn't put it down!
Gholbirius
As story of struggle and resourcefulness of its characters. This is written with ample attitude and desires which keep the reader involved with the choices given by the characters.
I love anything to do with Tudor characters, so this interested me very much. Most unusual book, and style, and a completely different way of looking at Anne Boleyn. I did enjoy it very much, although I found the 'modern' bit rather confusing. Love the two main characters, and again interesting to read how this author interwove the stories. I would recommend it to anyone that likes history, even if this is not a 'serious' history study.
