Ten top books for "Wolf Hall" fans

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Rebecca Jane Stokes tagged ten books for people who loved Wolf Hall, including:
The Fifth Queen Trilogy, by Ford Madox Ford

Ford Madox Ford is the greatest, and while I love his books set during the Great War, this trilogy might be my favorite. It’s strange that a man could so perfectly re-create the strange circumstances of Katharine Howard’s life at Henry’s court, but do that he does. Also, because it is ever-so-loosely based on fact, you can read it while shaking your head and going, “Oh giiiiirl, this is NOT going to end well!” It won’t, but thanks to Ford, it will at least end beautifully.
