Psychics, mediums, spirit guides, ghosts – and child abuse.
The New York Times review is excellent.

Hilary Mantel’s sequel to Wolf Hall sees Thomas Cromwell manage the machinations to bring about the downfall of Anne Boylen and positioning of Jane Seymour as Henry VIII’s third queen. The style took me a while to adjust to, but, as with Wolf Hall, once I’d tuned in to Cromwell’s narrative, I was hooked. Borrowed from Janette and read over the bitterly cold Easter break in Walton on the Naze.
