The Early Loves Of Anne Boleyn by Josephine Wilkinson
Anne Boleyn is perhaps the most engaging of Henry VIII’s Queens. For her he would divorce his wife of some twenty years standing, he would take on the might of the Roman Church and the Holy Roman Empire; he would even alienate his own people in order to win her favor and, eventually, her hand.

But before Henry came into her life Anne Boleyn had already wandered down love’s winding path.
