5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for any Tudor fan!, 16 Oct 2013

This review is from: The Anne Boleyn Collection II: Anne Boleyn and the Boleyn Family (Kindle Edition)
I was excited to hear that Claire Ridgway was bringing out another book about Anne Boleyn as I thoroughly enjoyed her first book "The Anne Boleyn Collection". I was interested to see what sort of information was included in this second book and what aspects of Anne's life that Claire examined. Upon reading I have to say that I was not at all disappointed and I found Ridgway's second book to be just as good, if not better than her first!

One aspect that I really loved about this book was Claire Ridgway's passion for Anne Boleyn. It was evident in the way she wrote about this remarkable woman, in the depth of her research and the power behind her words that she truly cares for Anne Boleyn and has a great passion for bringing the life and truth about Anne Boleyn to the reader. I also really enjoyed the sections where Claire added in her own personal thoughts and views. She does not push these upon the reader but gives them as a means to express herself and help the reader understand where Claire is coming from in her thinking and her beliefs.

Claire also included many fascinating images throughout the book. Some were black and white portraits while others were colour photographs. She also included family trees and maps, all of these help to add to the book as they were not only fascinating to look at but also helped the reader gain an idea of what a person or place looked like.

I loved Claire Ridgway's second book on Anne Boleyn. As with her first book it is clear that Claire did a great deal of research. This is not a book that has been written lightly and it is evident that Claire has spent a great deal of time reading, researching and checking her facts. Her passion for Anne Boleyn comes through and brings her writing to life. This is an absolutely wonderful book and gives a great overview of Anne Boleyn's history and her life and I believe it is a must have for any bookshelf.
