Description

“Turns A BRILLIANT LIGHT on one of the lustiest and one of the most dramatic periods of English history.” - Philadelphia Inquirer

My Lady of Cleves tells the mesmerizing story of Anne of Cleves , fourth wife of Henry VIII , one of the rare women who matched wits successfully with the fiery king and lived to tell the tale .

Aware of the disastrous consequences of not bearing an heir, Anne of Cleves bravely took on the duty of weathering the Tudor King’s temper and won the hearts of his subjects in the process.

Written by world-renowned historical novelist Margaret Campbell Barnes, My Lady of Cleves gives readers an intimate portrait of the warm, unpretentious princess who never expected to become Queen of England and how she navigated * a world of high drama and courtly elegance. *

A refreshing historical fiction about infamous Tudor England , fans of Philippa Gregory , Anya Seton and Bernard Cornwell will delight in this tale of Henry’s fourth Queen, her secret love, her power-hungry husband, and the country that ruled them all.
