Set against the intrigue and pageantry of the sixteenth-century English court, Evelyn Anthony's novel tells the love story of Henry Tudor and Anne Boleyn, who would become his wife, his queen, and the mother of one of Britain's greatest monarchs. On a lovely midsummer afternoon, Henry Tudor rides to Hever Castle. There, he feasts his eyes on Anne Boleyn, who caught his roving attention at court a few months earlier. Anne is in no mood to receive her king. He has torn from her the one man she loved: Harry Percy, who was forced to marry another. But King Henry VIII is not a man who gives up--the thrill of the chase only excites him more. Yet the woman he desires so passionately is no fool. Educated at the French court, Anne vows that she will not share the fate of her naIve younger sister, Mary, who after bearing Henry a bastard son was cast away and married off to a country squire. No, Anne will settle for nothing less than the crown of England, even if Henry has to break with Rome in order to marry her. History comes thrillingly alive in a novel that features a teeming canvas of iconic real-life characters: Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the enemy Anne vows to destroy; Henry's first wife, the proud and pious Queen Catherine of Aragon; and Thomas Cromwell, who engineers Anne's downfall. From the halcyon early days of courtship to her imprisonment in the palace tower for treason, this is a tale of love, ambition, and the tragic destiny of Anne of the Thousand Days.… (mere)

Not the most interesting novel about Anne Boleyn that I have read. ( )
  mari_reads | Sep 7, 2019 |
It's easy to read, and still a good read. Anne was an interesting woman...and you have to feel for her, and for Catherine.

Incidentally, you also encounter some other interesting people on the side, such as (soon-to-be-Bloody) Mary and (soon-to-be-martyred) Thomas Cranmer....and, not-so-incidentally, also the Cardinal, the Pope, and all the other functionaries who played such a large part in making and breaking marriages.

I'll admit, though, that the main pleasure and point of reading is to see the courtesan conquer the king, like a woman closing the jaws of a lion.

But whatever episode the authoress touches on--the attitude of the country, Thomas Cromwell's plan for the monasteries, Anne's intimate & understanding conversations with her brother, her ups and down on the path to power, the glimpses we catch of the infant Elizabeth, as well as of her father, the king-- she touches on with skill.

Reviewed August 2000 This book begins with Anne as a teenager and promised to marry Henry Percy - Henry VIII visits her parents home and falls in love with her. The novel hits on all the main areas of Anne and Henry’s relationship and is told from many viewpoints. In order for it to be a novel much is made about her hatred of Mary and Catherine as well as her love of Percy. What is not done well is the passage of time, you really don’t know how old she is at various stages, nor can you feel the time spent in the courtship. Novels at this type are very helpful as it helps to sum up relationships and work out motivations. One must always remember that this is still a novel - well researched - but still a historical novel. 19-2000 ( )
