About the Author:

Norah Lofts was one of the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists and many of her books remain in print today. Anne Boleyn is one of her rare - yet highly successful - forays into non-fiction and displays her trademark application of authentic period detail to a gripping narrative. Her fictionalised account of Anne Boleyn's life, The Concubine, was a huge bestseller in the UK and US. Lofts wrote more than fifty books.
