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.

Love Letter of Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn is a short collection of letters found. They have been transcribed and put in order according to the most plausible time-line. This is decribed at the conclusion of the letters. This is a great read and addition to a library for an Tudor enthusiast. They are not overly descriptive or seductive by any means, but they show Henry's true concern for her health during the time of the sweating sickness, and his interest in making her his mistress and then ultimately his wife. Once letter is included that Anne Boleyn writes to Cardinal Wolsey seeking interest in the decision made on the king's matter. The kindle addition is very cheap; however, once I purchased it I saw there was a second kindle version that was only .99, so search a bit and find that one obviously. :)

Thin book since the preserved letters are few, but worth a read for Tudor enthusiasts.

I've been deeply interested in Tudor history for the past 14 years and read everything I can get my hands on, fiction and nonfiction alike. I really enjoyed this slim volume of letters. They're all fairly brief, not terribly personally revealing, and definitely (or should I say, unfortunately?) NOT salacious in the least--yet there is a certain intimacy to them. They provide an authentic, albeit tiny, window into the private lives of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Reading the words meant for her dark eyes alone allows you be transported back in time nearly 500 years to discover firsthand his declarations of affection and constant, concerned queries regarding her health. This belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who's fascinated by Anne and Henry's tragic love story or by this period in English history.

I am a lover of all things Tudor. These letters are a wonderful addition to anyone's Tudor book collection. The fact that there is only one letter from Anne is sad, but it is a sign of the times (as well as the present). Women hold on to keepsakes more often than men, so the fact that there are many letters from Henry to Anne but not the opposite is of no surprise. I would love, though, to know what her responses were! These are two fascinating people and I thoroughly enjoy reading about them, especially in their own words.

This collection is an absolute must for anyone interested in the history of Tudor England. During Henry VIII's long courtship of Anne Boleyn, who refused all entreaties to become the King's mistress, Henry wrote several long, impassioned, poetic and sometimes desperate letters to the woman many believe was the grand passion of his life.

Although the passion sputtered out and died - as did Anne - the letters remain.

The letters themselves were low in content and the quality of the reproduction was very poor. I found the arrangement of the letters to be practically at random, and there was no table of contents and only a continual sequence of words without proper division of the content. It was more of a frustrating experience than an educational experience.

I have read a lot of histories about the Tudors over the years and they all quote these letters and I always wanted to read them. It was great to read them all in the correct order and put them into my own perspective. Whether you just started reading about the Tudors or are a seasoned campaigner in English history, this book is a must have.

These are the actual love letters Henry sent to Anne during their lengthy and tumultuous courtship. None of Anne's replies to him survived as everything possible of hers was destroyed after her fall from favor and her death, but Henry's besotted missives tell the well-known tale of an infatuation that changed history. Recommended only for those who already have an interest in the Tudor/Boleyn relationship.
