Newly widowed and the father of an infant son, Henry VIII realizes he must marry again to ensure the royal succession. Rejected by some of Europe's most eligible princesses, Henry settles on Anna of Kleve, a German aristocrat who has a secret she is desperate to keep hidden. When he meets Anna for the first time, Henry is disappointed, but marries her. Soon, though, he will be tempted to part with this wife just as he did the others before her. In this fourth instalment in the series, Alison Weir takes a fresh look at this royal marriage from the point of view of Queen Anna, a young woman alone and fearing for her life in a royal court that rejected her from the day she set foot on England's shore.
