About this product
- DescriptionIt is winter 1539. King Henry VIII is galloping through the night to Rochester to meet a young woman. Just arrived in England from Germany, Anne of Cleves is destined to become his fourth wife. He has never met her before. He has only seen her portrait - the portrait of a sweet, demure and incent young woman. The impatient and lovesick king must see her before their marriage. But this rushed and unplanned rendezvous will shock them and the country both. It will also lead to some completely unexpected and fatal results. In D. Lawrence-Young's well-researched vel, we learn of the strong passions and the deadly politics when the romantic plans of a frustrated Tudor king go badly wrong.
- Author BiographyD. Lawrence-Young takes the often pompous and frequently silly Shakespeare Authorship Controversy and turns it into a fast-paced page-turning detective story. All the nooks and crannies of rival candidates and claims are traversed in interesting locations and often funny encounters. The SAC has got under the Shakespeare-loving and teaching David Young's skin and he has turned this irritant into a pleasure to read and from which there is much to learn.
