Alison Weir is a top history writer. This book rates 4.7 of 5 of 86 reviews on Here is one review:
"The Children of Henry VIII" is a nonfiction history that reads like a narrative. One interesting, engrossing, detail-filled narrative. The book follows the ascent of Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Mary I, and Elizabeth I to the English throne. Also covered are the men around the throne, such as John Dudley, Thomas Cranmer, Edward Courtenay, Philip II, etc; I greatly liked living in the world Weir recreated, an England awash in political and religious machinations. An uncertain world, to be sure.
