Featured Review of The Tudor Wife in Closer Magazine

Closer, a glossy British gossip and lifestyle magazine, has published a featured review of The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy (published in the USA as The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy).

The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy, reviewed by Claire Bowen.

The Tudor Wife is a historical tale of love, intrigue and revenge based on real events at Henry VIII's court.

It's love at first sight when the handsome George Boleyn meets Lady Jane Parker, maid to Henry VIII's wife, Catherine of Aragon. Before long, Jane knows she wants to spend the rest of her life with George. However, the course of true love doesn't run smoothly and over time Jane finds herself playing second fiddle to George's sister Anne, causing great resentment and envy.

But when allegations of incest surface involving George and Anne, George is imprisoned in the Tower of London.

This tale combines the joys of love with raw emotions of jealousy, malice, and spite. I really enjoyed this classic story of a woman scorned, who is after revenge of the most truly bloody kind.

Please note The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy is published in the USA as The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy.
