Anne Boleyn: The Young Queen to Be

Author Josephine Wilkinson has recently released a new biography, Anne Boleyn: The Young Queen to Be. According to the publisher:

"The story of Anne Boleyn's early life, told in detail for the first time. Anne Boleyn is perhaps the most engaging of Henry VIII's Queens. For her he would divorce his wife of some twenty years standing, he would take on the might of the Roman Church and the Holy Roman Empire; he would even alienate his own people in order to win her favour and, eventually, her hand.

But before Henry came into her life Anne Boleyn had already wandered down love's winding path. She had learned its twists and turns during her youth spent at the courts of the Low Countries and France, where she had been sent as a result of her scandalous behaviour with her father's butler and chaplain. Here her education had been directed by two of the strongest women of the age - and one of the weakest."

  1. It took longer than I had hoped, but the 45 minute long play about the modern day versions of Anne and Henry is finally finished. For those who would like to listen to it, it is available on Sound Cloud https://soundcloud.com [username royschreiber] You can listen for free!
