"Thanks to the events surrounding her courtship with and ultimate marriage to Henry VIII, the tempestuous nature of that union, and the sordid yet mysterious circumstances of her execution, Anne Boleyn has always been a fascinating figure. Both popular and scholarly biographers of her have come along with some regularity. Quite simply though, this one transcends all previous efforts." Library Journal
"Inspired, thought-provoking history, sure to pique fans and scholars of the executed queen." The Kirkus Reviews
"...reinterprets Anne Boleyn's story from a feminist perspective and provides the most plausible explanation to date for her abrupt fall from royal glory to the block...illuminates its subject as well as the difficulties inherent in writing about sexual ideologies--and acts--shrouded by centuries of rumor." Margaret W. Ferguson, New York Times Book Review

Ms. Warnicke has developed a new theory regarding the fall of Anne Boleyn, second wife to King Henry VIII of England. Relying on primary sources, this book spins a story of Anne's execution based on medeival views of witchcraft, homosexuality and childbirth. It is both well written and well-researched.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
