I've recently been reading a lot of Tudor novels especially about Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard. Now I'm really wanting to read about Jane Seymour, but I haven't been able to really find any historical novels about her.

So if you have any recommendations for a historical novel about Jane Seymour - young adult or adult - I'd love to hear them. Thanks :)

C.P. Lesley (cplesley) I think Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies are about Jane Seymour (Wolf Hall was the name of Seymour's home). I hesitate to recommend them because I found the opening of Wolf Hall so excruciating that I decided not to continue, but lots of people like them.

You may also want to check the books of Jean Plaidy and Margaret Campbell Barnes. They both wrote whole series on Henry and his wives, and they may be easier to take.
