Best-selling historian Alison Weir presents the latest in her gripping wives of Henry VIII series, Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets. The King is in love with Anna’s portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride. She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage. But Anna’s past haunts her, and rumours at court could be her downfall: the King will not stand for a problem queen. Drawing on new evidence to conjure a startling image of Anna, Weir presents a charming, spirited woman, loved by all who knew her and even by the King who rejected her.
