Short but sweet
on June 16, 2008
Although this book is relatively short, it is still worth the purchase for anyone interested in the Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII affair. The letters are very touching and shed some light on how much King Henry loved Anne, thus cutting ties off with Rome and declaring himself the head of the English Church. It's almost surreal that a man could love a woman so much and go to such extremes for her, but then have her beheaded. Nevertheless, the book demonstrates his great desire for her and it is rather lovely to read.
