Three Women Who Share One Fate
Anne of Cleves
She runs from her tiny country, her hateful mother, and her
abusive brother to a throne whose last three occupants are
dead. King Henry VIII, her new husband, instantly dislikes
her. Without friends, family, or even an understanding of
the language being spoken around her, she must literally
save her neck in a court ruled by a deadly game of politics
and the terror of an unpredictable and vengeful king. Her
Boleyn Inheritance: accusations and false witnesses.
She catches the king's eye within moments of arriving at
court, setting in motion the dreadful machine of politics,
intrigue, and treason that she does not understand. She
only knows that she is beautiful, that men desire her, that
she is young and in love -- but not with the diseased old
man who made her queen, beds her night after night, and
killed her cousin Anne. Her Boleyn Inheritance: the threat
of the axe.
She is the Boleyn girl whose testimony sent her husband and
sister-in-law to their deaths. She is the trusted friend of
two threatened queens, the perfectly loyal spy for her
uncle, the Duke of Norfolk, and a canny survivor in the
murderous court of a most dangerous king. Throughout
Europe, her name is a byword for malice, jealousy, and
twisted lust. Her Boleyn Inheritance: a fortune and a
title, in exchange for her soul.
