The acclaimed international bestseller of the Tudor court, during the years of Henry VIII's pursuit of Anne Boleyn - and the revolutionary sequence of events that followed.

This chance for us Howards comes once in a century...

1521. Henry VIII rules over a fashionable court alive with pageant and celebration, the lack of a son his only threat.

When young Mary Boleyn arrives at court, she becomes his new mistress, an unwitting pawn in the ambitions of the powerful Boleyn and Howard families. As Henry's interest begins to wane, the Boleyns scheme to put forward Mary's sister, Anne.

Yet Anne Boleyn, newly returned from the French court, won't agree to be Henry's mistress - only his wife.Pitting the king's desperation for an heir against the advice of his powerful advisors, Wolsey and Cromwell, what follows will change the course of a country's history.

A master of period biographical fiction Philippa Gregory is one of the most popular novelists writing today. Her novels range across historical periods from the early 1400’s to the Twentieth Century but she is best known for her portrayals of the women around the Tudor court of Henry VIII, most famously Anne Boleyn in The Other Boleyn Girl.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Philppa Gregory:

'Gregory's research is impeccable which makes her imaginative fiction all the more convincing' Daily Mail

'Gregory is great at conjuring a Tudor film-set of gorgeous gowns and golden-lattered dining. She invokes some swoonsome images...while the politics are personal enough to remain pertinent' DailyTelegraph

'Subtle and exciting' Daily Express

'Written from instinct, not out of calculation, and it shows'
Peter Ackroyd, The Times

'For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating' Sunday Times
