One of history’s most complex and alluring women comes to life in this classic novel by the legendary Jean Plaidy.Young Anne Boleyn was not beautiful but she was irresistible, capturing the hearts of kings and commoners alike. Daughter of an ambitious country lord, Anne was sent to France to learn sophistication, and then to court to marry well and raise the family’s fortunes. She soon surpassed even their greatest expectations. Although his queen was loving and loyal, King Henry VIII swore he would put her aside and make Anne his wife. And so he did, though the divorce would tear apart the English church and inflict religious turmoil and bloodshed on his people for generations to come.Loathed by the English people, who called her “the King’s Great Whore,” Anne Boleyn was soon caught in the trap of her own ambition. Political rivals surrounded her at court and, when she failed to produce a much-desired male heir, they closed in, preying on the king’s well-known insecurity and volatile temper. Wrongfully accused of adultery and incest, Anne found herself imprisoned in the Tower of London, where she was at the mercy of her husband and of her enemies.

5.0 The Lady in the Tower
I first read The Lady in the Tower quite a few years ago and it has always been my favorite of all the books I've read so far about Anne Boleyn.

2.0
Made Anne look like a totally different person than she was. The book was too detailed on subjects no one cares about, not enough on what I wanted to know about.

3.0 The Lady in the Tower: The Wives of Henry VIII
It was good but she has better books. Didn't like the first person narrative that much.
