Historical Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

King Henry VIII, fat, ill, and suspicious of everyone, still desires their attention and love. Alternating diary entries of Jane Boleyn (sister-in-law to Anne Boleyn), Anne of Cleves, and Katherine Howard describe the king and life in court, including the many potential political pitfalls. Dagmara Dominczyk brings the conniving Jane Boleyn to life, showing first her determination to spy for the Duke of Norfolk, then her attempts to disentangle herself from deceit. Bianca Amato characterizes Anne of Cleves as a naïve woman with a soft German accent who bows to everyone's demands. Ruthie Henshall portrays Katherine Howard, the empty-headed teenager who counts her good luck AND her dresses as she becomes Henry's lover, then his wife. As Gregory depicts the three women, the narrators entice listeners to follow each one to the end of her tangled story. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
