Fresh from the palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love.
But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game.
Anne has a spirit worthy of a crown - and the crown is what she seeks. At any price.
Anne Boleyn. The second of Henry's Queens. Her story.

Wonderful fresh telling

Very interesting to to have Anne approached in a way that contrasts the many other novels of her life.
Alison Weir has long been my favourite author of historical fiction, and I have enjoyed the first two books in the 6 wives series almost as much as innocent traitor, which I still believe to be her finest work.
I enjoyed the performance of Anna Bentinck, but the version I listened to needs editing, there are several mistakes and even a double take of the same initially mispronounced sentence.

Odd editing but interesting take on the story.

On the whole, this was a great purchase but there are errors in the recording; Henry’s voice is annoying and it does take forever to get there before being over in a rush.

However, Weir puts a unique spin on Anne’s story and it captivated me enough to get to the end.

Unfortunately, Audible’s musical interlude cuts in immediately after the last words meaning I was jarred irrevocably.

What an end! Bloody Henry!
