Publisher's Summary

A bold new analysis of one of history’s most misrepresented women.

History has lied.

Anne Boleyn has been sold to us as a dark figure, a scheming seductress who bewitched Henry VIII into divorcing his queen and his church in an unprecedented display of passion. Quite the tragic love story, right?

Wrong.

In this electrifying exposé, Hayley Nolan explores for the first time the full, uncensored evidence of Anne Boleyn’s life and relationship with Henry VIII, revealing the shocking suppression of a powerful woman.

So leave all notions of outdated and romanticised folklore at the door and forget what you think you know about one of the Tudors’ most notorious queens. She may have been silenced for centuries, but this urgent book ensures Anne Boleyn’s voice is being heard now.

Absolutely Brilliant

Thankyou Hayley for your long awaited book. It was absolutely worth waiting for, I couldn’t wait for the hard copy so bought the audible copy, love listening to you reading your own work. I’m loving every second of it.

Very annoying narrator!

There is no doubt that the author knows her stuff, but reading aloud her own work was not enjoyable for me.
Her voice is grating on the ears and she sounds like she's trying too hard. I really wanted to like to this
book but she ruined it for me.

Modern look into a legendary lady

This was a fresh take on Anne Boleyn. The writer is constantly reminding us that Anne was a person and her life was real, not a story. Her viewpoints brought to light a lot of information I didn't know before, and a fresh perspective on the tale. I have always had a curiosity about Anne, and have spent countless hours doing my own research, reading books and watching documentaries and this book is the first one that I have come a crossed that doesn't peg her as a villain, seductress, schemer, or even a victim. It shows her as a human, and brings to light the good work she did during her short time as Queen. I also found it fascinating to finally get into the deep roots of King Henry VIII and bring up the possibility of mental illness. Don't get me wrong she doesn't make Anne a saint, she points out Anne's flaws which I liked because it gets tiresome when someone is either entirely for or against, its nice to see someone observe the good and the bad. There was also reference to Anne's family, friends and others at court, Again a lot of the information I didn't know before and it really made for a good background into how everything came to be and to each player in the "game".

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in Anne or Henry, Will be re-reading. I really did like how she brought up that Anne's history has mainly been observed by men, and how women have only been allowed certain roles in history. It was nice to see a little feminism kicking back and questioning that without being overbearing about it.

Dreadful narration ruins what could be a good book

oh lord, I've suffered through some dreadfully narrated books but this one is unbearable. Such a shame because the concept of the book appeals greatly.
sadly returned
