Back last year I read my first novel by Alison Weir, Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen. This was actually the third book in the Six Tudor Queen series that she’s written and it was a really fantastic read for a history lover like myself. When I was very kindly sent over the next book in the series, Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets, I was beyond thrilled and quite honestly I couldn’t wait to delve back into the Tudor period.
As you can imagine from the title, this next installment follows the life of Anna of Kleve who was King Henry VIII’s fourth wife, and the woman who actually outlived the rest of his other wives! From her childhood growing up in Germany, to the thrilling news of her potential marriage to the King of England and all that was to follow after this; the novel really has an impressive scope and timeline which enriches this aspect of history all the more.
