The Lady in the Tower

Written by Alison Weir
Review by Doug Kemp

The demand for the Tudors seems inexorable. This is a detailed study of the closing days of the life of Anne Boleyn by one of our most popular and successful writers of the period. Alison Weir makes a thorough and engaging study of all the sources that cover Anne’s fall from supremacy and her subsequent imprisonment and execution, confirming that the charges laid against her were indeed false, as well as challenging conventional historical beliefs about her execution and place of burial. A fascinating and informative read.
