Product Description

Product Description

Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour.

In his ambition to provide a male heir to the throne, Henry VIII married six times. Divorce from his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, caused England’s break from the Catholic church in Rome. He went on to divorce Anne of Cleves and behead Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard for infidelities. Jane Seymour died and Catherine Parr survived Henry.

Henry VIII’s Wives in an Hour will introduce you to these six entirely diverse and captivating personalities and the events that propelled them to their individual fates. You will learn which wife had what impact on Henry and England and understand why Henry and his six wives form the most popular period of Tudor history.

Know your stuff: read about Henry VIII’s wives in just one hour.

4.0 out of 5 stars THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE QUICK READ 20 Dec 2012
By Carol 'avid little bookworm' TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit to downloading this book because it was free for my Kindle and I enjoy the Tudor period of history immensely. Therefore, I am fairly well read on this era but I still thoroughly enjoyed this quick read. I'd recommend this as a really good starting point for anyone interested in Henry VIII's wives and/or Tudor history in general.

I really enjoyed Julie Wheeler's version of Anne of Cleves; some of the books I've read or listened to have not been so kind to her. There are pictures of paintings scattered throughout, which are particularly good for an ebook and the one of Anne of Cleves is one of my favourites and very flattering.

Well written and concise there is a lot of history compressed into this little book.

Again really enjoyed this, as it easily refreshed my knowledge of this time in our history. Now I can recite all six wives in order, and how they met their demise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such easy reading. Excepcional. 4 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book as it says in one hour. Such simple information to just look up a date of this period in time.

Was well worth the money and I will definitely buy other books of this one hour read. Easily rated at five stars from a person who usually never gives more than four.
