** FIVE STARS ** Threads will find its way onto the "top ten life-changing books" lists of many future readers... -- Ian R. Thorpe, poet, broadcaster and author
This is a strong, smart, captivating work. -- Writer's Digest
Wonderful. A really great book - a beautifully woven tapestry. -- Independent Book Publishers Online, June 2002
Henry, seemingly in defense of Anne (but more likely acting out of "stubborn perverseness," she observes), terrorizes England and decrees widespread political murder in order to protect her. Ultimately, to Anne's horror, this once passionate husband turns on her and has her executed as well.
Threads, a reincarnation fantasy, opens with Anne's execution. Her fury at her husband s betrayal has enough momentum to survive centuries, but in Threads she learns that she has been assigned a hard task: she must review their history together through a number of past lives, and find it within herself to forgive him. This may prove difficult and take some time. The husband in question is Henry Tudor, the notorious Henry VIII. The narrator is the stubborn, volatile Anne Boleyn, who is not at all inclined to forgive.
It is a very unusual love story.
