Description

A novel of the devout young woman who became the unwilling object of King Henry VIII's ardor-and the mother of his only son. In this third book in the epic Six Tudor Queens series, the acclaimed historian and bestselling author brings new insight to this dramatic story, showing how pure fear for her life determined Jane Seymour's actions. 25-year-old Jane Seymour wants nothing more than to become a nun. But her ambitious father has forced her to live at court as lady-in-waiting to Queen Katherine of Aragon, a fellow-Catholic whom she soon comes to love and admire. So Jane is appalled when King Henry shunts Katherine aside in his lustful pursuit of Anne Boleyn, but even more so when he takes Anne's life in his rush to wed-Jane herself! Unwilling to marry but terrified to resist Henry's advances for fear she might share Anne's fate, and propelled by her family, Jane becomes Queen of England a mere ten days after Anne's execution. She knows she must produce a male heir without fail. Her very life depends on it.

Professional reviews

"Will audiobook listeners enjoy a historical novel about Henry VIII's least interesting queen, the generally perceived to be mousy, insipid Jane Seymour? They certainly will when Alison Weir is the writer and Rosalyn Landor the narrator. Weir's meticulously researched and dramatically written portrayal of Jane is compelling, and Landor makes the myriad Tudor characters come vividly to life. The Jane we learn about is complex: ambitious, haunted, passionate, and religious. Henry is shown as a contradictory figure; one moment we hear a gentle, caring lover and the next the imperious voice of a despot. The intrigues, aspirations, and deadly secrets of long-dead courtiers are brought to light in a way that emotionally connects with listeners. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
