Acclaimed, bestselling historian Alison Weir draws on new research for her captivating novel, which paints a compelling portrait of Jane and casts fresh light on both traditional and modern perceptions of her.
Jane was driven by the strength of her faith and a belief that she might do some good in a wicked world. Eleven days after the death of Anne Boleyn, Jane is dressing for her wedding to the King. She has witnessed at first hand how courtly play can quickly turn to danger and knows she must bear a son or face ruin. This new Queen must therefore step out from the shadows cast by Katherine and Anne. In doing so, can she expose a gentler side to the brutal King? History tells us how she died. This spellbinding novel explores the life she lived.
Waterstones will be selling books at this event and Alison will be book-signing after the talk.
