She was said to have bewitched the King of England. The first English Queen to be executed, Anne Boleyn's life was short and controversial in its time. Colin Hamer presents a fresh look at Anne, that during her seven years in the French court, she came to true faith in Christ. When she returned to England, beautiful and outspoken, she caught the king's eye, but refused to become his mistress out of Christian conviction. He goes on to show the impact for good she made from her position of influence and how she changed the English speaking world.
Anne Boleyn, twenty years old, stepped onto the shore at Dover in the winter of 1521 after several years abroad. She had been sent to France to assimilate French culture, and had used the time well. She was all set to make a big impression at the Tudor courtand did, capturing the heart of Henry VIII. But this woman, who was in the grave by the age of thirty-six and on the throne of England for only three years, provokes strong reactions from many. Was she an immoral woman who seduced Henry away from his rightful wife for the advancement of family and personal gain? In this well-researched, fresh look at Anne, Colin Hamer sets her in her context as a young woman who had come to true faith in Christ, and shows the impact for good she made from her position of influence, an impact we still benefit from today.
