One of history’s most complex and alluring women comes to life in this classic novel by the
legendary Jean Plaidy.

Young Anne Boleyn was not beautiful but she was irresistible, capturing the hearts of kings and commoners alike. Daughter of an ambitious country lord, Anne was sent to France to learn sophistication, and then to court to marry well and raise the family’s fortunes. She soon surpassed even their greatest expectations. Although his queen was loving and loyal, King Henry VIII swore he would put her aside and make Anne his wife. And so he did, though the divorce would tear apart the English church and inflict religious turmoil and bloodshed on his people for generations to come.

Loathed by the English people, who called her “the King’s Great Whore,” Anne Boleyn was soon caught in the trap of her own ambition. Political rivals surrounded her at court and, when she failed to produce a much-desired male heir, they closed in, preying on the king’s well-known insecurity and volatile temper. Wrongfully accused of adultery and incest, Anne found herself imprisoned in the Tower of London, where she was at the mercy of her husband and of her enemies.

The fourth in the Queens of England series, this is the story of Anne Boleyn- the unlucky second wife of Henry VIII. The story is told from her perspective, from her beginning as a child attendant to Henry VIII's beloved sister, Mary, when she becomes Queen of France, through her relationship and ultimate marriage to Henry VIII. Very good book!read more

An excellent companion to the Showtime series "The Tudors." The two follow one another closely. Plaidy's writing blends history and fiction in a way that makes the story easily accesible. If you've watched the series and want to know what happens next (we all know what happens to Anne Boleyn, but what of everyone else) then this is an excellent source.read more
