Alison Weir Talk: Anna of Kleve, Queen of Secrets - SOLD OUT

Join us in the beautiful surroundings of the Tithe Barn at Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre to hear Alison talk about her latest book, the fourth spectacular novel in the highly acclaimed SIX TUDOR QUEENS, which is being released on Thursday 2nd May.

A GERMAN PRINCESS WITH A GUILTY SECRET.

The King is in love with Anna’s portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride.

She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage alliance.

But Anna’s past is never far from her thoughts, and the rumours rife at court could be her downfall. Everyone knows the King won’t stand for a problem queen.

Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets is Alison Weir’s ninth published novel and the fourth in the Six Tudor Queens series about the wives of Henry VIII, which was launched in 2016 to great critical acclaim. The first three books in the series – Katherine of Aragon: The True QueenAnne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession and Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen were all Sunday Times bestsellers.
