Joy Abney Mary Tutor, Henry's sister, is one of the few women who defied him and got away with it!


message 2: by Paula (new)

Paula Would love an AofC book is there is one available and readable. I did, however, just see a fiction book on Mary Boleyn in the bookstore that looked really good! Ohhh! Why didn't I pick it up or note the author?!?!


message 3: by Jackie (new)

Jackie I'm still getting started on this and they are all so interesting...I hate to have to pick.

Colleen I know Jackie, I always go to my bookshelf and pick a person based on whichever book jumps out at me the most.

I am so excited that there are 39 votes already!!! I guess people don't want me badgering them with constant pleads for votes in the next two weeks, LOL

Jonathan Hope I'm not repeating myself here but to answer Paula's comment I've just published (both non-fiction) Elizabeth Norton's biog of Anne of Cleves and recently published Josephine Wilkinson's biog of Mary Boleyn. The small number of non-fiction books on Catherine of Aragon are all very old. Though don't worry I'm publishing a new one (by Prof. Patrick Williams) in about a year-ish...Mary Boleyn: The True Story of Henry VIII's MistressAnne of Cleves: Henry VIII's Discarded Bride. Note the cover of the Mary Boleyn book is the draft cover, we used a different picture on the final book. The Mary Boleyn is short and introductory so may not be for the hardcore Tudor buff, it's really aimed at someone who hasn't read the various books on Henry VIII's six wives books.

Connie Margaret Tudor is the sister I like to read about. What a life!

I would like to mention to the publisher that I would like Norton's Cleves book on Kindle, please :) (as opposed to clicking the little button to the same effect on amazon, hehe). It's only available for $20 that I have found so far, so I might wait a bit to see if the price drops.

Norton seems to be working her way through the wives, Jane Seymour, both Annes, and Catherine Parr. Any plans for a Kitty Howard or C of Aragon book? (Not sure if you can tell us or not).


message 8: by Chris (new)

Chris I agree with Connie. I'd like to read more about Margaret. She doesn't get a lot of attention, but it's her children who still sit on the throne of Great Britain.


message 9: by Colleen (new)

Colleen Uh oh another tie, time to start pestering... hehehe


message 10: by Amber (new)

Amber Mary Boleyn would be very interesting. I know next to nothing about her life. Then again they are all interesting topics! :)


message 11: by Colleen (new)

Colleen I have been voting MB because I have a book on her I want to read but I'll read whomever is chosen.

I am so a button clicker too--wonder if it means anything or is it just a button that goes nowhere?

Back to topic--so many interesting books to read, so much time taken up by jobs/eating/sleeping. . .:-)


message 13: by Colleen (new)

Colleen I know Tina, why does life have to get in the way of reading?! LOL, that's why I love my audiobooks; they fill some of the gaps...who needs sleep anyway? ;)
