Henry VIII’s unwilling third bride
Jane Seymour, aged 25, wants to become a nun. But her ambitious father forces her to live at court as lady-in-waiting to Queen Katherine of Aragon, a fellow Catholic whom Jane comes to love and admire. Jane is appalled when King Henry VIII shunts Katherine aside in his lustful pursuit of Anne Boleyn—and even more so when he takes Anne’s life in his rush to wed Jane herself.
Unwilling to marry but terrified to resist Henry’s advances, Jane becomes Queen of England a mere ten days after Anne’s execution. She knows that she must produce a male heir without fail—her life depends on it.
In this third dramatic novel in the epic Six Tudor Queens series, the beloved historian shows how fear for her life determined Jane’s actions.
