    How I love this series and I think that this one (as well as the one on Anne of Cleves) is the one I've been anticipating the most. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Six Tudor Queens: Jane Seymour – The Haunted Queen, by Alison Weir, is the third in a series of specially commissioned books which together tell the story of Henry VIII’s wives, from their point of view. Each instalment is a highly detailed, fictionalised account based on known and researched facts, with literary licence taken to aid storytelling. The author is a well regarded historian and explains at the end of each book why she presented k...

    I love Alison Weir’s books; whether they be fictional or non-fiction, AW’s research shines through and transports you back in time.

Good to know she was in anguish over the beheading of Anne Boleyn, her position was not an easy one for sure, how could she not have feared for her own life?. There is less information available, Ja...

    The Tudor period is one of my favorites in English history so I was delighted to be given the chance to read this advanced copy. Alison Weir has created a vibrant and engaging portrayal of Jane Seymour through her early years at home in Wulfhall; her years of service to both Katherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn and, finally, her short reign as queen of England. Jane Seymour is one of King Henry’s wives that I knew little of, so it was really int...
