Product Description

RELUCTANT QUEEN: A TUDOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOVEL ABOUT HENRY VIII’s LITTLE SISTER

‘A very readable account of a fascinating woman who dared to stand up to Henry VIII and survived. It is thoroughly researched, admirably written and the author's love of the Tudor period shines through.' Historical Novels Review

One NOT about any of the six wives! Henry had plenty of other relatives, most of whom, given his short-lived dynasty and shaky right to the crown, the always insecure Henry had executed throughout his reign in order to secure his throne.

Can you imagine what it must be like to be the little sister of infamous, English king, Henry VIII? Remember, this is the king who went on to have six wives, two of whom he had beheaded.

And although the teenage Mary Rose is his favourite sister (he even named his famous ship after her), his shifting alliances and ruthless desire to have his own way, made him push the young and lovely Mary into a hateful state marriage with the ailing and ancient King Louis XII of France.

But, a reluctant Mary Rose, as strong-willed as Henry and passionately in love, for the first time, doesn't give in easily. Before agreeing to the match, after a relentless campaign to get her to say yes, by her loving brother, Mary Rose extracts a promise from Henry. A promise she is determined he will keep.

‘Very easy to read, very hard to put down. This made a Mary Tudor so accessible and relatable to the reader.’ AMAZON.COM READER REVIEW

‘Thoroughly enjoyable.’ AMAZOM.COM READER REVIEW

Geraldine Evans also writes the Rafferty & Llewellyn Mystery Series and the Casey & Catt Mystery
Series.

About the Author

Geraldine Evans discovered her love of history after reading Jean Plaidy's historical novels; far more interesting than dull Factory Acts and Corn Laws, because they focus on people. From these, she discovered other wonderful historical novelists, and then, her interest turned to historical fact. Who could not find the vital characters of Tudor times fascinating? Even after five centuries, Henry VIII's personality strides out from the page: his pugnacious will takes one's breath away. Geraldine felt a growing urge to write her own historical novel, and Reluctant Queen is the result. She decided to write about Henry VIII's little sister because she admired Mary Rose's audacity in defying her brother, whose ego and desire to have his own way, even at the age of twenty-three, was formidable. And Henry's queens and daughters have been done to death; can there still be readers willing to go over the same ground yet again? Perhaps. But Mary Rose's story is not commonly known-most people say to me that they didn't know Henry even had a little sister. As well as her Historical writing, Geraldine Evans also writes mystery novels.
