KIRKUS REVIEW

The Anne Boleyn story, told with warmth and human qualities, and backdropped with the political moves that marked her short career. Here is her wit, her courage, her power, as she wins the King- then loses him to Jane Seymour and loses her life. Historical novelization ably told, carefully mounted, this offers a satisfying portrait of both main and minor characters, and a credible handling of the life and forces of the period which made possible Henry's break with Rome, his control of power, his career as ""royal murderer"".
