By Philippa Gregory

Chapter 29

Christmas 1530

  • 'Tis the season to pretend that you love your wife, so Katherine is back at court.
  • Mary is shocked to see defeat in the queen's eyes. Katherine is tired of pretending to be happy.
  • As the queen's lady in waiting, Mary transports a gift for her: a basket of oranges.
  • Mary accidentally drops the basket and discovers a secret note at the bottom of it.
  • B is for betrayal and for Boleyn, so Mary snatches the note and delivers it to her uncle.
  • Because Mary is an honest traitor, she later tells Katherine she stole the note.
  • The queen icily dismisses Mary. If looks could kill, Mary would be dead.
