Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry VIII, remains one of the most controversial and interesting women in history. She was one of the reasons I began my website, and I remember reading everything I could.
Anne Boleyn: 500 Years of Lies begins with the tale that she must be most maligned women in history, and Hayley Nolan is here to tell you the truth. I must have been reading the wrong books because I’ve read plenty that were not biased against Anne. This book is clearly aimed at a younger audience with its clickbaity title and hashtags. The angry tone of the author is a huge turn-off, and I often found myself rolling my eyes. For me, it was a complete distraction of what could have been a good book about Anne.
