The author covered her life as best she could because Jane Seymour is the lest documented of all Henry's queens. The author made many assumptions about what Jane might have thought or felt because there were no surviving records. ( )

The author claims this is the first ever book-length biography of Jane Seymour, and perhaps she's right -- I know of no others. But there's a reason no one has ever written a whole book about Jane before: very little is known about her. There just isn't enough information to fill a book. So Norton must resort to speculation with a lot of phrases like "might have" and "probably" and "likely" and so on. Makes for frustrating reading. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184868102X, Hardcover)

The first ever biography of JaneSeymour, Henry VIII's third wife, who died in childbirth giving the king what hecraved most - a son and heir.

First biography to show the real Jane Seymour, she may have been submissive and obedient in front of Henry, but her true personality was far more cutthroat.

Huge interest in the wives of Henry VIII, most of his wives are the subject of at least two books, Jane has none.

Jane Seymour is often portrayed as meek and mild and as the most successful, but one of the least significant, of Henry VIII's wives. The real Jane was a very different character, demure and submissive yet with a ruthless streak - as Anne Boleyn was being tried for treason, Jane was choosing her wedding dress.

From the lowliest origins of any of Henry's wives her rise shows an ambition every bit as great as Anne's. Elizabeth Norton tells the thrilling life of a country girl from rural Wiltshire who rose to the throne of England and became the ideal Tudor woman.
