Olivia recommends: Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I by Tracy Borman
Reading Level: Teen and up
Summary: This book tells the interesting story of Anne Boleyn’s relationship and influence over her daughter, Elizabeth I.
Olivia says: Tracy Borman is a favorite historical Tudor period author of mine. Each of her books are outstanding, and this one doesn’t disappoint either! I enjoyed the well written timeline of Anne Boleyn’s marriage to Henry VIII and her time as Queen and Mother to the future Queen Elizabeth I. Many people may believe that Queen Anne was forgotten and put aside by her daughter based on what others hoped she would believe after her execution, but this book proves otherwise and offers a unique and fascinating perspective to this famous mother daughter duo. I highly recommend.
