Publisher's Summary

“All eyes and hair” a courtier had said disparagingly of her – and certainly the younger daughter of Tom Boleyn lacked the bounteous charms of most ladies of Court. Black-haired, black eyes, she had a wild-sprite quality that was to prove more effective, more dangerous than conventional feminine appeal. The King first noticed her when she was sixteen – and with imperial greed he smashed her youthful love-affair with Harry Percy and began the process of royal seduction… But this was no ordinary woman, no maid-in-waiting to be possessed and discarded by a king. Against his will, his own common sense, Henry found himself bewitched – enthralled by the young girl who was to be known as the Concubine…

Very, Very Good!

What made the experience of listening to The Concubine the most enjoyable?

I absolutely loved this book! Norah Lofts was such a talented writer! The details, conversations, and the historical events are so well intertwined with the story that makes it entirely believable. <br/><br/>The other great plus on this audio book was Patricia Gallimore's performance... She is one of my favorite narrators! Her performances and impersonations are always impeccable! <br/><br/>I absolutely recommend it!

A real disappointment

I really tried to finish this book but it was impossible. First of all the writing is boring as a dry history text and secondly the narrator seriously got on my nerves. A real waste of time and money
