A novel about Jane Seymour, the devout young woman who became the unwilling object of King Henry VIII's ardor--and the mother of his only son. In this third book in the epic Six Tudor Queens series, the acclaimed historian and bestselling author brings new insight to this dramatic story, showing how pure fear for her life determined Jane's actions. 25-year-old Jane Seymour wants nothing more than to become a nun. But her ambitious father has forced her to live at court as lady-in-waiting to Queen Katherine of Aragon, a fellow-Catholic whom she soon comes to love and admire. So Jane is appalled when King Henry shunts Katherine aside in his lustful pursuit of Anne Boleyn, but even more so when he takes Anne's life in his rush to wed--Jane herself! Unwilling to marry but terrified to resist Henry's advances for fear she might share Anne's fate, and propelled by her family, Jane becomes Queen of England a mere ten days after Anne's execution. She knows she must produce a male heir without fail. Her very life depends on it.

An engrossing portrayal of King Henry the VIII's third wife, Jane Seymour. A sympathetic and kind-natured person caught up in the storm and drama of King Henry's court. The author takes some liberties with what has been commonly accepted historical facts about Jane, but backs them up with a fascinating afterward about her research. Overall this is a solid installment of Alison Weirs "Six Tudor Queens" and a very enjoyable read for fans of the era.
