Praise for Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen
"Bestselling [Alison] Weir's impressive novel shows why Jane deserves renewed attention. Without any dull moments, Weir illustrates Jane's unlikely journey from country knight's daughter to queen of England. . . . From the richly appointed decor to the religious tenor of the time, the historical ambience is first-rate. With her standout novel in the crowded Tudor-fiction field, Weir keeps the tension high, breathing new life into a familiar tale and making us wish for a different ending."--Booklist (starred review) "A sumptuous historical novel anchored by its excellent depiction of Jane Seymour, Henry VIII's third queen. . . . A must for all fans of Tudor fiction and history."--Publishers Weekly "Highly recommended for fans of the period . . . As with the earlier novels in the Six Tudor Queens series . . . Weir focuses tightly on the sole perspective of her protagonist, thereby finding enough relatively fresh territory to keep even die-hard Tudor buffs interested. A fascinating afterword sheds light on Weir's departures from the confirmed historical record and on the additional research she did for this novel, including an investigation of how exactly Jane died."--Library Journal (starred review) "Deft, authoritative biographical fiction . . . Weir offers a dramatic and empathic portrait of Jane Seymour."--Kirkus Reviews
