A Giveaway To Die For
Yesterdays winner is Nina, please send your shipping address to newroyalreviews at yahoo dot com.
Yesterdays question was: Which wife of Henry is your favorite?
Here are your responses:
Catherine of Aragon: 6
Anne Boleyn: 6
Jane Seymour: 3
Anne of Cleves: 2
Katherine Howard: 0
Katherine Parr: 2
Many of you said that it was Catherine of Aragon’s devotion to both her husband and to her beliefs that endeared her to you. While others selected Anne Boleyn due to the way history has vilified her. Jane Seymour comes in third, which seems fitting as she was Henry’s third wife. Jane Seymour is also the only wife that was able to give Henry his long awaited for Heir, and for that accomplishment she is the only wife buried beside him. Anne of Cleves was not pretty or pleasing enough to be a wife, but she seemed to be able to stay friends with Henry after their divorce which was rather surprising. Young Katherine Howard received no votes and I must say that I am not surprised, I do wonder if the girl was a bit daft. I mean her cousin was sent to the scaffold for having an affair, surely she would have erred on the side of caution, but we all know how it ended. Lastly, we have Katherine Parr, the wife who out lived Henry. Katherine was well-versed in religious matters and her zeal for debating such matters caused Henry alarm to the extent an arrest warrant was drawn up. It was a good thing for her that the King was feeling lenient when they came to arrest Katherine.
For today’s giveaway I have 3 copies of Sandra Byrd’s novel, To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn to giveaway.
When Anne Boleyn ascends to the court of Henry VIII, she takes her best friend, Meg Wyatt, along with her. Everything seems thrilling at first, but then their favor rises and falls. Having pledged her loyalty to Anne no matter what, will Meg lose her greatest love---and her own life---in the process?
There are many ways to arrive at the Tower of London though there are few ways out. Kings and Queens ride in before a coronation, retinue trailing like a train of ermine. Prisoners, however, arrive on foot, shoved through one cavernous gate or another by the wardens who live, as all do, at the mercy of a merciless king. Some unfortunate few are delivered to the Tower by water.
