Includes historical notes, an authors note, and bibliography
From a master of historical fiction Carolyn Meyer comes the moving tale, based on a true story, of a white woman who lived her life among the Comanche Indians, married the chief, and in 1861 was captured along with her daughter and returned against her will to a white settlement.
Though born without great beauty, wealth, or title, Anne Boleyn blossomed into a captivating woman. She used her wiles to win the heart of England's most powerful man, King Henry VIII, and persuade him to defy everyone--including his own wife--to make her his new queen. But Anne's ambition was her fatal flaw. This is the true story of the girl everyone loved to hate.
Carolyn Meyer's engrossing third novel in the award-winning Young Royals series tells Anne's fascinating story in her own voice--from her life as an awkward girl to the dramatic moments before her death.
Having been taken as a child and raised by Comanche Indians, thirty-four-year-old Cynthia Ann Parker is forcibly returned to her white relatives, where she longs for her Indian life, and her only friend is her twelve-year-old cousin Lucy.
