Superb! The best book on Anne I've read!
on 30 June 2013
This proves that Lacey Baldwin Smith still has it at 89!!!
Whilst not strictly a biography, it is mainly a critique of G.W. Bernard, Eric Ives, Retha M. Warnicke and Alison Weir's work on Anne Boleyn, especially the events surrounding her fall.
The important questions and events concerning her are covered linearly with reference to the four historians.
Basically, Smith largely dismisses their work on her fall because he argues there is not enough evidence to support any of their theories.
As you would expect from the author it is wonderfully written with wit abound!
I normally hate the fact that publisher Amberley invites authors to write a book but Amberley should invite Lacey again if the result is to be like this!
A breath of fresh air!
