The young woman who changed the course of history.

Fresh from the palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love.

But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game.

ANNE BOLEYN. The second of Henry’s Queens. Her story.
History tells us why she died. This powerful novel shows her as she lived.



Given that Anne Boleyn is one of my favorite historical figures of all time, it follows that I’ll want to read this novel by Alison Weir, who is one of my favorite popular historians. I don’t know when I’ll get to it, though, given how many other books I want to read…
