THE FAVORED QUEEN
It is often surmised that Henry VIII loved his third wife Jane Seymour best. She appeared to be quiet, kind — and she gave him the son he coveted. In her third novel centering on Henry’s wives, Erickson portrays Jane as a strong, deeply passionate woman. Erickson merges her meticulous research into this fictionalized biography with grace, making the events and personages accessible. Highly enjoyable and educational Erickson shows she is a master of the craft.
