Review

Not only is Brief Gaudy Hour a moving and life-like portrait of Anne Boleyn, it is a thoroughly delightful novel in which the author has succeeded in blending historical events and utterances with suspense in narrative and spontaneity in character. --New York Times

Despite its well-known details, the story of Anne Boleyn takes on a new excitement. This is due to the author's skill indepicting her heroine as a real woman. --Toronto Globe and Mail

From the Back Cover

The Timeless Story of History&'s Most Intriguing Heroine&
&
The enigmatic Anne Boleyn comes to life in this charming, brilliant portrayal by acclaimed British novelist Margaret Campbell Barnes. &
&
The infamous love of King Henry VIII and the mother of Queen Elizabeth I, Anne Boleyn undertook a rocky journey from innocent courtier to powerful Queen of England. A meticulous researcher, Margaret Campbell Barnes immerses readers in this intrigue and in the lush, glittery world of the Tudor Court. The beauty and charms of Anne Boleyn bewitched the most powerful man in the world, King Henry VIII, but her resourcefulness and cleverness were not enough to stop the malice of her enemies. Her swift rise to power quickly became her own undoing.&
&
The author brings to light Boleyn&'s humanity and courage, giving an intimate look at a young woman struggling to find her own way in a world dominated by men and adversaries. &
&
