maidenhood, sacrifices, and yearning for love. This riveting
historical resonates long after the last page is
"[Anna of Kleve] is an outstanding novel, the most intriguing so far in Weir's Six Queens series. . . . Weir tells her story with passion, a strong emotional pulse and an excellent knowledge base, creating a novel which will keep her readers page-turning. . . . [It] is a thoroughly researched novel, conveying the tense atmosphere created by Anna's anxieties and fears and the threatening factions at Henry's court."--Historical Novels Review
"The title of Weir's perceptive latest entry in her acclaimed Six Tudor Queens series . . . signals a new, original view of Henry VIII's fourth wife. . . . Political, legal, and religious matters are dexterously illustrated. . . . A richly satisfying portrait of a woman who made the best of limited choices."--Booklist "To say my expectations were high would be an understatement; to say that this wonderful book exceeded them would be even more so. In this vivid and beautifully crafted portrayal, Alison Weir transforms Henry VIII's much-maligned fourth wife into a woman of passion, courage, and mystery. Utterly gripping and endlessly surprising, this novel captivates from the first page to the last."--Tracy Borman, author of Thomas Cromwell and The Private Lives of the Tudors
