Item description for Anne Boleyn: One short life that changed the English-speaking world (History Today) by Colin Hamer...

Overview
Anne Boleyn, twenty years old, stepped onto the shore at Dover in the winter of 1521 after several years abroad. She had been sent to France to assimilate French culture, and had used the time well. She was all set to make a big impression at the Tudor courtand did, capturing the heart of Henry VIII. But this woman, who was in the grave by the age of thirtysix and on the throne of England for only three years, provokes strong reactions from many. Was she an immoral woman who seduced Henry away from his rightful wife for the advancement of family and personal gain? In this wellresearched, fresh look at Anne, Colin Hamer sets her in her context as a young woman who had come to true faith in Christ, and shows the impact for good she made from her position of influence, an impact we still benefit from today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anne Boleyn: One short life that changed the English-speaking world (History Today)?

Short book on Anne Boleyn's contribution to the church's history  Nov 9, 2007
This book is part of the 'History Today' series and is an interesting summary of the importance of Anne Boleyn to Tudor history, particularly the rise of the Protestant church in the UK. However it is overlaid with a strange modern mindset where people's behaviour and faith are often measured against 21st century mores rather than the sixteenth century setting and with a rather anti-catholic feel running through the book. The author certainly gives Anne the benefit of the doubt in most cases where events have been variously interpreted but presents a good case for her importance in our history, as well as some modern theological reflections on historical events which were sometimes a little awkward. It's an easily readable book and some of the information about the harshness and difficulties of life in Tudor England was fascinating.
