Synopsis

Henry VIII The Story of the Ruthless Tudor King by Harriet Castor

Henry VIII was flamboyant, courageous and headstrong. His life spans a fascinating, important period in history, in which he plays a crucial part. This biography of Henry VIII looks further than the facts that everyone knows - what was Henry like as a boy? How did he become the man that he was? Lives in Action is a series of narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
