The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Posted by lori . 1 Comment


This is an engaging and highly readable book on the fascinating lives of King Henry VIII and his six wives.  Not only do you get insight into the king and the individual, vibrant and diverse women who were married to him, you also get a look at court life with its morals and political intrique, the international struggle for power and England’s break with Rome and the start of the Protestant Reformation.  I lean towards fiction, but once I started reading this beautifully written and researched book, I couldn’t put it down.
