An engrossing portrayal of King Henry the VIII's third wife, Jane Seymour. A sympathetic and kind-natured person caught up in the storm and drama of King Henry's court. The author takes some liberties with what has been commonly accepted historical facts about Jane, but backs them up with a fascinating afterward about her research. Overall this is a solid installment of Alison Weirs "Six Tudor Queens" and a very enjoyable read for fans of the era.
