Alison Weir vet verkligen hur man levandegör historia.
Bara 9 dagar efter Anne Boleyns avrättning blir hon Henry VIIIs tredje fru.Hon tjänade de två drottningarna innan henne och var i hetluften i arbetet bakom kulisserna som möjliggjorde äktenskapet och att bli drottning.

Det är ett porträtt av en väldigt empatisk kvinna som stiger fram.Hon var katolik och fick se sin tro reformeras ,avståndet till påven och Rom fortskred ,landet var delat i två läger angående religionen.

Hon lyckas dock med det som varken Katarina eller Anne lyckades med,att ge Henry en son men det var också en gåva som kostade henne livet.

Jag rekommenderar att läsa böckerna i följd eftersom man då får den historiska bakgrunden till den tidens England och hur det var att leva som kvinna,långt ifrån de självklara rättigheter en kvinna har idag.
