Anne Boleyn by Joanna Denny
Book DescriptionAnne Boleyn has been persistently vilified, even after her execution in May 1536 - on trumped up charges of adultery - she has been pursued beyond the grave, subjected to all manner of accusations. Was she really the scheming temptress portrayed by her enemies, guilty of incest and witchcraft? Was she deformed? Could a woman with the abnormalities described by her detractors have drawn and held the love of the king for more than ten years? Joanna Denny's biography plunges the reader into the heart of the intrigue, romance and danger of the Tudor court, and paints a picture of the real woman - attractive, highly intelligent and devout - that has been hidden for centuries by the distortions of politics and religion.

UK Kirkus Review » Much has, of course, been written about the turbulent years between 1525, when Henry VIII first became aware of Anne Boleyn, and 1536, when she met her grisly end. This decade, after all, was to shape the future of Britain. The common perception of Henry's second wife is of a ruthless schemer, her monstrous nature expressed in physical form by her sixth finger. Denny seeks to redress the balance by painting Anne as an accomplished, beautiful and modest woman who had strenuously resisted the attentions of the King, and whose life was defined by her virtue, and whose maternal influence ultimately enabled Elizabeth I to become a highly successful monarch. Readers more accustomed to the measured tones of Starkey and his ilk might be surprised by Denny's passionate and partisan account, in which Catherine of Aragon and Thomas More, not to mention Henry himself, receive most unsympathetic treatment, but her research has been extensive and some of the detail of court life is fascinating.
