More Than Just Six Wives...

I was inspired to get this book because I wanted to learn more about Henry's Wives. History only shares their ends and not their stories. I would highly recommend this book if your just as curious as I was about these six women who were screwed over by this man.

Great for history buffs... NOT a novel

Amazing research went into this book and it's very satisfying you're interested in the topic. I learned a lot and thought the narrator did a great job. That being said, this is NOT a novel but instead a reporting and interpretation of facts from contemporary source material and more recent works. If you're looking for historical fiction this isn't it (try Philippa Gregory) but it's great for fans of history.
