The secret diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell( Book )

65 editions published between 1997 and 2021 in 9 languages and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A diary written by the second wife of King Henry VIII in which she recounts her life as lady-in-waiting to the queen while fending off royal advances until he breaks with Rome, divorces and marries her. The diary, which ends when she is beheaded, is filled with advice to her daughter on the way to handle men. The diary is found by her daughter after she becomes Queen Elizabeth I. Anne Boleyn was the second of Henry's six wives, doomed to be beloved, betrayed, and beheaded. When Henry fell madly in love with her upon her return from the French court, where she was educated, he was already married to Catherine of Aragon. But his passion for Anne was great enough to rock the foundations of England and of all Christendom. When the pope refused to dissolve his marriage to Catherine, Henry broke with Rome, founded the Church of England with himself at its head, and married Anne. But all too soon his passion faded; when Anne bore him not the promised son but a daughter, Elizabeth, Henry forsook her for another love, schemed against her, and ultimately had her sentenced to death. In Robin Maxwell's captivating new novel, Anne has kept, unbeknownst to the king, a secret diary that she presses into the hands of a confidante before she is put to death. She says it is a gift for the daughter she will never know. Years later, soon after Elizabeth ascends to the throne, Anne's confidante brings the precious diary to the young queen. In it, Elizabeth learns the truth about her much-maligned mother: her fierce determination, her hard-won knowledge about being a woman in a world ruled by despotic men, and her deep-seated love for the infant daughter taken from her shortly after her birth. These revelations shake Elizabeth to the core. As her mother's conquests and defeats unfold before her eyes, Elizabeth finds in them an echo of her own drama as a passionate young woman at the center of power. She too is besieged by the counsels and betrayals of the men around her - including those of her own lover, the ambitious Robin Dudley. Determined to heed the lessons her mother learned at so high a price, Elizabeth, the "Virgin Queen", the most revered of all English monarchs and perhaps the most powerful woman of all time, makes a resolution that will change the course of history

Caterina was fifteen years old when she fell in love with a man much above her station. The daughter of a humble village apothecary, she was considered unmarriageable by her lover's wealthy and ambitious family. She had no recourse when they took her child away from her, leaving her bereft and rejected by society as a "fallen woman." But Caterina had always kept a part of herself hidden from society. In defiance of what was expected for girls in the 15th century, her father had chosen to educate her--not only in the medicinal arts, but in Greek philosophy, pagan mysticism, and the secret of alchemy, all considered heretical by the church. Now, to be close to her son, she would carry that deceit farther than she had imagined, taking up a new life under a dangerous new identity. In Florence at the height of Italy's cultural Renaissance, Caterina would discover undreamed-of opportunities and freedoms--and her gifted son, Leonardo
The virgin Elizabeth : a novel by Robin Maxwell( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A book of passion, of sixteenth-century England, of greed and political ambition unto death. Historians and novelists have written extensively about the various aspects of Queen Elizabeth I's long, rich, and tumultuous life. No one has ever given us a fully realized portrait of the greatest English monarch as a young girl. Concluding her brilliant Tudor trilogy, Robin Maxwell enters this new territory by introducing Elizabeth as a romantic and vulnerable teenager dangerously awakening to sexuality with the wrong man. Elizabeth, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, was banished from the court at the age of two when her father sent Anne Boleyn to her death. Seven years later, when the gracious and immensely wealthy Catherine Parr became Henry's sixth wife, she softened the King's heart and Elizabeth was readmitted to the court. For the next four years the young princess enjoyed a warm friendship with Catherine and a new sense of belonging
