Le Temps Viendra: A Novel of Anne Boleyn Volume II by Sarah a Morris
I have just finished reading Le Temps Viendra Part II. What an emotional journey it has been! I read LTV Part I with mounting curiosity about where the interwoven stories of the two Annes would lead and with a high regard of Sarah’s storytelling style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative, easy read, 13 Feb 2014
GOt this book for a short course on medieval history as I wanted to know more about how ordinary people were affected by the socio-political changes of the time. It certainly ticked that box, and I found out so much that I didn't know. Dyer's writing is academic, but readable and it is well organised, so you can navigate to the parts that particularly interest you. A good buy for uni study and the enthusiatic amateur.
