    One thought on “Anne of Cleves: Henry's Luckiest Wife”

    1. This book reads like some sort of badly written essay. First problem is that the Anne of Cleves is written in first person, but others are not. It would be fine, except they are not really seen from Anne’s perspective either. It just appears like a mishmash of different styles and can be very confusing. Second, dialogue is very often done away with or is very stilted and monotonous and the book reads in parts like a never ending essay on Henry’s court, Anne’s life or Tudor times. This prev [...]

    2. I loved the Tudors, so you can just imagine how much I looked forward reading all about Anne of Cleves, Henry’s luckiest wife.This novel was well written and I felt as if David took me back to that time. He’s dialogue, description, and everything is above expectations. I really enjoyed this novel. He must have done a thorough researched and that I must praise him for.His characters were well developed and I do believe that was how the mad King was. This was by far one of the best novels I’ [...]

    3. SNOOOOOOOOOZE!!!!!This book is beyond boring. And I love those crazy Tudors.I have to admit, I was excited about this one because I love learning about all things Tudor England, and Anne of Cleves is probably the Henry's wife I know the least about. The author could have done one of two things with this novel to make it infinitely more successful:1- Write a very historically detailed and accurate account about Anne and her life before, during, and after her marriage to the whale of a king, inclu [...]

    4. There are a LOT of “As you know Bob” conversations to awkwardly fit in all the backstory the author thinks we need to know but can’t figure out any smoother way to slip in.Also, Anne of Cleves naiveté is dialed up to about 11. I will buy that she started out pretty green, but not that she was outright continually, happily stupid, as she’s presented here.Still, there are parts of the story that do work when Anne is treated with a little subtly and when the story moves forward without sto [...]

    5. Anne of Cleves is one of Henry VII's less known wives. He got her after looking at a portrait done by someone making her much more desirable than she was. When she arrived Henry was appalled by her. He married her to keep international relations intact. I won't give any more away. A fascinating look at a much overlooked Queen!

    6. Written as if Anne herself dictated this book. I only rated it 3 stars because I had some problems with credibility but it was an interesting book and didn't take me long to finish it. Had a few examples of "spin" to the tale that surprised me.

    7. Most of us know something of mad King Henry the VIII's history, we know he beheaded more than one wife, and broke away from The Roman Catholic church to form a new religion, The Church of England. Nevertheless few, if any of us know much about Anne of Cleves, or of the turmoil rampant in England at the time. D Lawrence Young gives us an in depth perspective of what it must have been like to live as an aristocrat during those years, from the point of view of Anne of Cleves, who hailed from a smal [...]

    8. Anne of Cleves review ANNE OF CLEVES - HENRY’S LUCKIEST WIFEBy David Lawrence-Young“Anne of Cleves - Henry’s Luckiest Wife” is a well-written, great read! The author, David Lawrence-Young does a fantastic job in telling the tale of Anne of Cleves - one of the notorious King Henry’s many wives.Set in the early 1500s, the author provides great foreshadowing of things to come in the innocent Anne of Cleves’ life with King Henry. Tension builds as one learns of King Henry’s personali [...]

    9. I've always believed Anne of Cleves to be the most intriguing of Henry VIII's wives, even if she isn't generally regarded as the most interesting. D. Lawrence-Young does a wonderful job capturing her as “Henry's Luckiest Wife” and I think most would agree she was. This fictional account follows Henry VIII and Anne of Cleves from the birth of Edward and the death of Jane Seymour through to the death of Henry VIII.The book is written in a combination of third and first person, but the transiti [...]

    10. I just finished reading Anne Of Cleves: Henry's Luckiest Wife. It is written by D. Lawrence-Young. It is about King Henry The VIII's fourth wife. It talks somewhat about her life before marrying the king. Her marriage to him. How she was treated after his marriage. It also talks about his third, fifth, and sixth wives. I can honestly and whole heartedly say that I loved this book. I have never been a history fanatic, but this book definitely got me into this particular story in history. I feel l [...]

    11. Anne of Cleves is the compelling novel of King Henry the VIII fourth wife, who just happens to be one who escapes the marriage with her head in tact and a generous settlement from the King.In an attempt to ensure the success of his lineage to the throne, King Henry the VIII desires to have a house full of sons. After giving birth to a son, his wife Jane Seymour dies and Henry must marry again. He puts his trusted advisers to work in search of the next Queen of England. They discover Anne of Clev [...]

    12. I am not a huge fan of Historical Fiction, although, I have read some really fine novels that utilized excellent historical research, with carefully crafted fictional story-lines. Anne of Cleves: Henry's Luckiest Wife is packed with accurate historical information, and I give the author an A for that. That said, while I found this novel to be interesting, and quite enjoyable, the story-line, in my view, was nothing spectacular. Particularly, the first person narration by Anne of Cleves herself, [...]

    13. Oh, how I loved this! From all of the other Tudor-related books that I've read, the historical content does seem to be very accurate. In reading and film, we rarely ever hear about Anne of Cleves; it's usually either Mary, Elizabeth, or the infamous Anne Boleyn. With that being said, I was extremely fascinated to find out more about this not-so-talked about royal member. After reading this book, it is my humble opinion that she does not get the recognition that she deserves. Anyone who could sto [...]

    14. This was quite an interesting book, but had many editorial errors. I find these so distracting! I suppose I should consider myself lucky that I don't run across this problem often. However, it has been prevalent so far this year.I liked the story, though I wish it had been clear which parts of the book were supposed to be first person, and which were for historical background. Instead, the author wrote all as though they were first person.I conclude by stating that the ending did cement a higher [...]

    15. I thoroughly enjoyed this book starts as a narrative by Anne of Cleves then progresses to the story of her short marriage to Henry VIII, her divorce and his marriages that followed. A lot of historical information and all the political moves going on. Really put things in that era in perspective.The last few chapters go back into a narrative by Anne of Cleves as she observes all the political maneuvering, executions, power struggles etc,The Epilogue after her death catches us up with other chara [...]

    16. The best of the wivesThis book shows the character of Anne of Cleves, and how she turned a potentially ill-fated situation to her advantage. If Henry VIII had showed better judgment instead of looking at the aesthetics, she would have made a fine queen. It is also most curious that he objected to her being fat and flabby with an offensive odor, when the same could be said of him. This book goes into more detail about why the marriage was short lived, and it also gives an overview of the other kn [...]

    17. An interesting read about one of Henry VIII lesser known wives. It is a good blend of history and historical fiction. There is no attempt to gloss over Henry's penchant for beheading, but neither does the author dwell on it. I would recommend the book if you are interested in English history, royal history, and/or the Tudors.

    18. This was a really good book, and I would have given it 4 stars, but for the missing/repeated sections of text in the first half of the ebook. Other than that, I have no complaints. The story was very good, rich in historical detail. I would definitely recommend reading itrhaps not as an ebook, though.

    19. Well written, well researched fictional account of Henry's luckiest wife. The Anne of this novel is a charming person. She led a rich and fulfilled life during a dangerous period in history. I enjoyed this book, it is full of wonderful historical figures. The writing flows and the book is easy to read.

    20. Very EnjoyableAlthough I have read a lot of historical fiction, especially the Tudor courts, I really didn't know much about Anne of Cleves except that she escaped Henry VIII without "lasting" damage. I truly enjoyed reading about this fortunate woman.

    21. Historical fictionThe life of Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII's fourth wife. If you are unfamiliar with her, pick this up and read it. Not a hard read and it covers most of the historical points in her life.

    22. Info was interesting, but I would expect a teacher of English and literature to take better care with sentence structure and spell-check. Those errors distracted me from what would otherwise have been a 4 to 5 star review.

    23. A nice readAn entertaining book. Some facts, some fiction. A few grammatical errors, but overall, well written. If you're interested in this period of history, you'll like this book.

    24. I enjoyed this book about Anne of Cleves. It is told from her viewpoint, in first person. But it was nice to read something like this, it puts things in a different perspective.

    25. Iloved this book. Anne of Cleves is brought to life. She surely was the "luckiest" wife of King Henry. While I am partial to this era of history, I recommend it for any to read.

    26. I only read a few chapters and decided that the writing was too poor to continue. I will start the Anne of Cleves book by Margaret Campbell Barnes instead
