Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen: A Novel
Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen, a Novel is a slow unfolding of the story of Jane Seymour, the short-lived third wife of Henry VIII.
Jane has always only ever wanted the quiet life of a nun. But her family has other ambitions. In an England rife with political scheming and intrigue, Jane navigates the muddy waters through shocking incidents and complicated love affairs, all the way to the throne.
This is historical fiction of the highest quality. Alison Weir’s deep knowledge of the Tudors and the age shines, with deeply complex and realistic characters. Here is a story that feels vivid and alive, made so by the fascinating descriptions and unhurried journey through a story we only think we know.
The third of a six-book series on Henry’s queens, Jane Seymour is a book that readers can really dig into. It is deep and heavily detailed but never boring. Weir handles her characters with deep knowledge and a deft hand, bringing history and the intimate stories therein alive even more vividly than she does in her historical biographies. Definitely put this one on your reading list.
