Product description

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. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
