About the Book

A daredevil beauty stakes all and loses in the great game of kings and kingdoms…

Henry the Eighth was wedded to a total of six wives.

E. Barrington tells the romantic history of the most beautiful and vivid of them all - his second wife, Anne Boleyn.

Anne rises to fame when she captures the heart of King Henry.

He is married to Katharine of Aragon, but she is six years his senior, and though she has provided him with sons throughout their marriage, they have all died.

Henry is desperate for an heir, and he becomes captivated by the mysterious and shrewd Anne Boleyn.

But Christian law stands in his way, and their courtship is put on hold as he battles those in power to gain a divorce from Katharine.

And the moment Anne finally gets what she wants - the crown - is also the moment her downfall begins…

Barrington's classic novel portrays Anne as shrewd, lovely, ambitious, generous, disillusioned, and resolved to capitalize her beauty for her own ends. This is the story of Anne, but also of the days of Anne - when the question over a woman's virtue was paramount in the great game of kings and kingdoms…
