Thomas Cromwell, a blacksmith's son, spars with enemies, orchestrates the divorce of King Henry VIII, and to the chagrin of more established nobles, rises in power. His maneuverings, like those of a chess grand master, will keep you glue to the page. ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS!! ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor

This deceptively slim book makes for a brilliant, powerful entry point to feminism. Accessible enough for folks of all ages. Adichi is an invaluable voice in today's feminist movement.
