Synopses & Reviews
This powerful new biography presents a portrait of Anne Boleyn different from the unsavory and unflattering accounts of her that have come down through history. Instead, we learn about the real Anne-a woman who was highly literate, accomplished, an intellectual, and a devout defender of her Protestant faith. Annes tragedy began when her looks and vivacious charm attracted the notice of Englands violent and paranoid king whose love for her trapped her in the vicious politics of the Tudor court. This compelling account of Anne Boleyn plunges the reader into the intrigue, romance, and danger of King Henry VIIIs court and the turbulent times that would change England forever. It will forever change our perception of this much-maligned queen.
A bold, new interpretation of Anne Boleyn's place in history.
Joanna Denny reveals the truth about Anne Boleyn-intelligent, literate, and devout-and the truth about her king and his court-violent, scheming, and profane
