FATAL THRONE The Wives of Henry VIII Tell All

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jayne Entwistle, Justine Eyre, Fiona Hardingham, Elliot Hill, Elizabeth Knowelden, Ann Marie Lee, Katharine Lee McEwan, Heather Wilds

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Seven talented YA authors and gifted narrators embrace the personalities, foibles, dreams, and philosophies of Henry VIII's unfortunate wives. First-person narratives reveal each queen in her own right, not eclipsed by the famous king or distorted by stereotypes. Portraits are distinctive and individual. Varying tones properly represent the power and struggles of each—determined and devoted Katharine of Aragon; proud Anne Boleyn; meek, plain Jane Seymour; rightly embittered Anna of Cleves; vivacious, bawdy Catherine Howard; and clever Kateryn Parr, who shrewdly bows to her husband's will to keep her head and principles. Elliot Hill, as an heir-obsessed Henry, is, first, powerful and arrogant and, later, sullen and lonely. Together, these perspectives paint a personal, poignant, thoroughly engaging view of history.
