    This would have been a lot stronger if it had been a 300 page book So much potential Full review to come

    I would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review This book is a re release of a book that was originally released in the 80’s I would have thought considering that because of it being a re release that it has thoroughly edited; however there is a lot of spaces between words missed making it at times hard to read There is also a use of a weird spelling of Boleyn Bullon before switching to the accepted spelling It also then goes on to call her Nan Bullon once she is dead; I know that people of the time would have referred to her differently once she was dead but because its historical fiction it would be consistent and easier to understand if the same name was used all the way through The novel starts with Henry on his deathbed looking back at his life and gives a really nice basic overview of the era It tells the majority from Henry’s pov which is really interesting and unusual Henry is shown in his weaker moments and when he is younger showing the difference between him as a young person and an older man especially after his head injury The characters are really realistically portrayed and I like that actual speeches that where said at the time are used I love that references to the past ueens are littered all the way through including the chapter names being named after the symbols of the ueens The novel ends really well

    This was an interesting and uick read I read it in the space of a day A good shortened version of Henry's reign and the wives livres and the king himself Personally he sounds am abhorrent man but he was a product of his timeInteresting and catchy it kept me with it the whole way through There are spelling errors Ann Bullpen as if the author used voice to text to do some of her typing or her spell check was off but I would still recommendI'd like to thank the authorpublisherNetgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

    A great read I've always enjoyed reading about the Tudor period and Henry VIII I didn't learn anything new from this book but still enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone who enjoys reading about our Monarch

    A nicely written gallop through Henry VIII's complicated marital record This is the book that sparked my lifelong interest in the Tudors I am glad that I have finally got around to reading it some 35 years after my first attempt


  6. Memphistigergal Memphistigergal says:

    This book by Maureen Peters was originally written in 1972 and recently republished This book follows Henry VIII from during his first marriage to Katherine of Aragon to his deathbed My first impression of this book is that I had read all of this before and I didn’t necessarily learn anything new in the process However I’m glad I thought about this book for a few days before I wrote my review I didn’t realize the original publishing date until after I read this book so I feel like a lot of the newer works that have been published have pulled from this work or from similar research as this book This work unlike other Tudor books I have read takes a look at the Tudor age from the view of the the King himself History paints him as a tyrant and a spoiled bully but I don’t think that gives him enough credit As a royal he was very used to getting his way Undoubtedly he was selfish and bent the will of the people and country to suit his However I do feel that he was a very dogmatic religious being He was very concerned about the church in England and did his best to drive out the corruption that he saw was there from the Catholic Church stemming from Rome I don’t think that Henry ever hated any of his wives However I do believe he was heavily influenced by the peers he kept around him and his wives were the unfortunate pawns and results of these advisors I enjoy ANYTHING Tudor related and I felt this was a very easy read considering the amount of information that was poured into it If you are a Tudor fanatic by all means pick this one up I was provided an copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review


  7. Emily Emily says:

    I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest reviewThe story of Henry VIII and his journey through marriage after marriage after marriage is one that has been told many times from many perspectives This version promises to be from Henry's perspective which I hoped would provide somewhat of a new angle While the book has an interesting flavor to it thanks to the author's talent at spinning beautiful sentences it offers nothing new Still we get a front and center seat to watch Henry's fears about not producing an heir Frankly he's afraid he will send the country into civil war if he doesn't produce an heir and he is afraid of forcing that fate on the people he lovesThis is a uick read and probably best suited as a primer on all of the many players in the saga that is the Tudor court I wished I'd had this book to read during my Tudor Stuart history class when I was in college But as far as offering a new perspective or even a novel that reads like a novel and not a history summary this book fell a bit shortI would point out this book is refreshing in that is isn't catty sappy smutty or rife with Tudor court cliches like most other novels I've read about this era It is a cozy book but not one that is terribly intriguing


  8. Leyla Johnson Leyla Johnson says:

    There has been a so much written about Henry the eight that I wondered how this book would be different Well the story doesn't change no happy endings but it certainly gave another prospective of it The story starts at the end Henry's deathbed he revising the road his life has travelled I enjoyed it it does not romanticise or makes it over violent It shows Henry as a man who is sometimes likeable sometimes not a man who is clever yet easily used His wives stories are dealt with in a realistic way I really enjoyed it and I found myself liking Henry despite everything It is a well written book that can change well accepted feeling in a reader This book was provided to me in return for an honest and unbiased review


  9. Ashley Ashley says:

    I received this is as an ARC from NetGalleycom Maureen Peters writes good simple historical fiction Her books are great for beginners and they hit the major topics of the lives of the subjects but there is not much depth to the story and it is hard to get too involved in the story It is great for a uick easy read but not something I would recommend unless that is exactly what someone is looking for


  10. Danielle Reily Danielle Reily says:

    I enjoyed this book a lot It's a fast paced story that covers all six of Henry the Eigth's wives I think this book would be a good book for anyone to start getting interested in the time period I liked the book but it's based on a lot of unproven historical legends It is still a good book just remember it's historical fiction not history
