Philippa Gregory 3-book Tudor Collection 1
The Constant Princess, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Boleyn InheritanceeBook - 2013
From the bestselling author of THE WHITE QUEEN - the first three novels of her Tudor Court series: THE CONSTANT PRINCESS, THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL, THE BOLEYN INHERITANCE THE CONSTANT PRINCESS tells the story of Henry VIII's first wife, Katherine of Aragon, the Spanish princess raised to be Queen of England and first brought to England to marry Henry's older brother, Prince Arthur. But when her new husband dies, she must fight for her birthright - and in marrying the now heir to the throne, she must tell the greatest lie... and hold to it. THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL, made famous by the film adaptation, tells the story of the less notorious Boleyn sister, Mary, who catches the wandering eye of the young King Henry VIII. But when he tires of her, she sets out to school her sister, Anne, as a replacement - and before their story is over, the course of English history has been irrevocably changed. Politics and passion are inextricably bound together in this compelling drama. In THE BOLEYN INHERITANCE, the court of Henry VIII is increasingly fearful at the moods of the ageing sick king. With only a baby in the cradle for an heir, Henry must take another wife and the dangerous prize of the crown of England is won by Anne of Cleves. Anne, although fascinated by the glamour of her new surroundings, senses a trap closing around her. Katherine Howard is confident that she can follow in the steps of her cousin Anne Boleyn to dazzle her way to the throne but her kinswoman Jane Boleyn, haunted by the past, knows that Anne's path led to Tower Green and to an adulterer's death.
