The Other Boleyn Girl Chapter 42

By Philippa Gregory

Chapter 42

Summer 1534

  • Anne may not be able to conceive, but fertile Mary is pregnant with William's child.
  • Mary goes to Anne, the queen, and tells her she is with child and has married William.
  • Anne accuses Mary of being an insult to the family and banishes her from court. As if this were a punishment.
  • There's a catch. There's always a catch.
  • Anne tells Mary she will take away her children to punish her.
  • Banished, Mary tries to focus on the positive—she gets to be with her husband, away from all of Anne's drama.
  • Mary asks George to help her get her children, and he promises to do whatever he can.
  • At Hever, Mary and William live as a happy farmer family, like "Tudor Gothic", which is just like "American Gothic," but with frilled collars.
