it was amazing

I have read a lot about King Henry VIII, his children, and his infamous wives, but this by far is the best. Alison Weir brings history to life as she gives a historical account of each wife of Henry VIII, explaining the differences between the women that wore the crown during that crucial part of history and the impact they had on the time period. Weir painstakingly explains the part each woman played in the life of King Henry VIII, and eventually, his children. This is not a boring history text, but rather a fresh breath of air into a somewhat stuffy genre. Alison Weir also writes historical fiction, which lends to her craft, but her talent creates the man who went down in history for his six wives into the king he was---more than life could handle.
