Historical fiction at its best! Hilary Mantel brings to life 16th century England in the second installment of the Wolf Hall trilogy. Bring Up the Bodies focuses on the demise of Anne Boleyn, as orchestrated by Thomas Cromwell. Mantel gives us a glimpse of this significant time period and the pressure that Thomas was under to keep the King happy. In using the viewpoint of Cromwell, Mantel is able to add interest to a story to which we already know the ending.
