A queen brought low by love compromised and power abused - the tragedy of Mary Tudor.

These are desperate times for Mary Tudor. As England's first ruling queen, her joy should be complete when she marries Philip, the dashing Prince of Spain. But despite her ardent devotion, he's making it painfully obvious that he cares little for his new wife - and her struggle to produce an heir only makes him colder towards him. Lonely and depressed, Mary begins to vent her anguish on her people - and England becomes a place of cruelty, persecution and fear.

Mary's terrible fall from grace is seen through the eyes of Rafael, a Spanish sundial maker who is part of the Prince's flamboyant entourage. He becomes the one person that she trusts, but his life - and new-found love - will be caught in the chaos that follows...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for `The Sixth Wife':

`My, what a story...delightfully vulgar and utterly compelling.' The Times

`Mesmerising and beautifully written.' Scotsman

`Suzannah Dunn...weaves a kind of love story that is both moving and believable. This is the Tudor world as seldom seen...The result is historical chick lit at its most charming.' Daily Telegraph

`Dunn [sheds] possible new light on Katharine's marriage to Thomas Seymour and her final days are treated with sympathy and skill.' Tablet

Praise for `The Queen of Subtleties':

'A stunningly refreshing way of retelling an old story...I really could not put this one down. It brings Anne Boleyn to life as never before, and, probably for the first time ever in fiction, Henry VIII emerges as a truly credible character in an authentic setting.' Alison Weir, author of `The Six Wives of Henry VIII'

“The Queen's Sorrow”

The publisher's review of this novel suggested a fascinating story about Mary Tudor told through the eyes of Rafael, a Spanish sundial maker. This was not my experience of the book. The story mainly tells of... More
