Review: Doomed Queen Anne

Doomed Queen Anne by Carolyn Meyer

At the young age of 13, Anne Boleyn declares her ambition to someday become Queen of England. The only problem is that King Henry VIII is already married. This story examines the life of Anne as she maneuvers through political intrigues and court games to work her way into power. Although she ultimately achieves her goal, the ambition that led her there could also prove to be her greatest weakness…

This book is one of the installments from Meyer’s Young Royals series, detailing the early lives of many of the famous Tudor women. Although this wasn’t my favorite book, it is quite good. Once again, Meyer creates a wonderful picture of the Tudor court. Her ability to bring historical figures such as Anne to life is amazing. Don’t miss out on the other wonderful books in this series either.

These have been very popular at my library. Duchessina, the new one, is very good as well. Of course, I love Meyer best for her first book, Miss Patch's Learn to Sew Book!
