The Summer Queen
Elizabeth Chadwick
Mary Boleyn: The True Story of Henry VIII's Favourite Mistress - Josepha Josephine Wilkinson This is a pretty short biography that is rather sparse on factual information concerning Mary and resorts to descriptions of court, pageants, and other individuals connected to Mary as filler. Wilkinson does set out her theories (and some evidence both for and against) for Mary being the older sister and the likliehood that Henry VIII was the father of her children. It's not a bad book per se, it's just rather underwhelming.
