Description

Anne Boleyn is the odd girl out. Newly arrived to the court of King Henry VIII, everything about her seems wrong, from her clothes to her manners to her witty but sharp tongue. So when the dashing poet Thomas Wyatt offers to coach her on how to shine at court-and to convince the whole court they're lovers-she accepts. Before long, Anne's popularity has soared, and even the charismatic and irresistible king takes notice. More than popularity, Anne wants a voice-but she also wants love. What began as a game becomes high stakes as Anne finds herself forced to make an impossible choice between her heart's desire and the chance to make history.

Professional reviews

"LongshoreÕs novel is a fictionalized account of Anne Boleyn's early years in Henry VIIIÕs court, before she became queen. The story drops the listener right into the middle of Tudor England, complete with courtly intrigue and gossip. Bellair gives emotion to the drama and intrigue of the courtiersÕ competition for popularity with the king, which required sophistication and knowing whom to trust. She also creates a sympathetic character in Anne Boleyn, who starts off as an outsider and eventually becomes a strong, independent woman whose voice demands that she be heard. Bellair gives listeners a treat with her accents and portrayal of emotions in this well-voiced drama. S.B.T. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
