A german princess with a guilty secret. The King is in love with Anna's portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride. She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage alliance. But Anna's past is never far from her thoughts, and the rumours rife at court could be her downfall. Everyone knows the King won't stand for a problem queen.
Series title: The Six Tudor Queens series, 4
So interesting to read the full story of this queen's life rather than just the small part we hear about, her brief time as Queen of England. Weir is extremely thorough in her research and brings the characters to life. She also provides a useful commentary giving us the basis for her fictional assumptions.
