From the best selling author Lyn Andrews comes a compelling historical epic set at the endlessly fascinating Tudor court about the most infamous woman of the age - Anne Boleyn - and the man who loved her before she became queen. From the moment Henry Percy, the future Earl of Northumberland, first glimpses the beautiful Anne Boleyn he is captivated and quickly proposes marriage. Anne has been taught to use her charms to her advantage and to secure her family's position of power at court. She sees that Henry Percy's affection is sincere and agrees to marry him. But a match of the heart has no place in a world where marriage is a political manoeuvre. Torn apart, the lovers are exiled to separate ends of the kingdom. For Henry a lifetime of duty awaits, while he remains true to the only woman he will ever love. But he is not the only man to be bewitched by Anne. And when King Henry VIII determines to make her his queen, the course of history is changed for ever.


My fascination with the enigmatic Anne Boleyn began when as an impressionable eleven year old I watched the film Anne of the Thousand Days . For me there is always the ever present conundrum of, what if Anne had married Henry Percy?

Most certainly the course of British History would have been forever altered, but whatever would romantic historians have written about in the 20th and 21st century ?

  2. Sounds terrific! I love reading about this period, especially when the focus is on Anne Boleyn (and yes, count me as another impressionable young girl blown away by Anne of the Thousand Days)! I'd love to hear what you think once you read this one.
