A book from the Collection of The New Royalty World:
This book begins with Anne as a teenager and promised to marry Henry Percy – Henry VIII visits her parents home and falls in love with her. The novel hits on all the main areas of Anne and Henry’s relationship and is told from many viewpoints. In order for it to be a novel much is made about her hatred of Mary and Catherine as well as her love of Percy. What is not done well is the passage of time, you really don’t know how old she is at various stages, nor can you feel the time spent in the courtship. Novels at this type are very helpful as it helps to sum up relationships and work out motivations. One must always remember that this is still a novel – well researched – but still a historical novel.
