KIRKUS REVIEW

Continuing her historical series (Within The Hollow Crown, My Lady of Cleves) the author here offers the forever fascinating story of Anne Boleyn. She recaptures the elegant entertainment and exquisite beauty of court life and costume, the personalities of Wyatt, Henry Peroy, Wolsey and others, and follows Anne from her 18th year to her downfall through falsified evidence at her trial. Again the full panoply of the period and a great sympathy of presentation should help history come alive for the interested student.
