Jane the Quene
All Jane Seymour wants is a husband; but when she catches the eye of a volatile king, she is pulled deep into the Tudor court’s realm of plot and intrigue…
England, 1535. Jane Seymour is 27 years old and increasingly desperate to marry and secure her place in the world. Meanwhile, King Henry VIII is 45 and increasingly desperate for an heir. As Henry begins to fear he is cursed, Jane’s honesty and innocence conjure in him the hope of redemption.
Thomas Cromwell, an ambitious clerk whose political prowess keeps the King’s changing desires satisfied, engineers the plot that ends with Jane becoming the King’s third wife. For Jane, who believes herself virtuous and her actions justified, miscarriages early in her marriage shake her confidence. How can a woman who has committed no wrong bear the guilt of how she unseated her predecessor?
