And I mean besides the following books (though I haven’t read any of them yet anyway): Bessie Blount: Mistress to Henry VIII
Cor Rotto
The Light in the Labyrinth
In the Shadow of the Throne
Royal Inheritance

I guess The Secret Daughter of Henry VIII (or Henry VIII’s Secret Daughter: The Tragedy of Lady Jane Grey) by F. W. Kenyon could count as an alternate history one since it depicts Jane Grey as Henry’s daughter and Edward as a bastard.

They don’t necessarily have to be historical fiction either (seeing as I mentioned Bessie’s biography); I’m just looking for something to read that features any of them.

Cor Rotto is excellent I couldn’t put it down. The Raven’s widow by the same author is as good

That’s the one with Jane Boleyn, right? I’ve heard it paints her in a more sympathetic light, which is great. Honestly, sometimes I feel like Lady Rochford is more misunderstood than Anne is at times, so this sounds very refreshing.

Yes, The Raven”s Widow is about Jane B. It’s nice to see another side of a woman who has been much maligned by history.
Adrienne Dillard is a great story teller and she did a wonderful job in giving the reader another view of Jane.
I admit that I was one who somewhat slammed Jane for what she allegdely did, i.e helping Cromwell to condemn her husband and Anne, but over the years and thanks to the great minds in this forum I’ve come to see a very different Jane.
She wasn’t as black as she has been painted by history, she was a woman who wore her heart on her sleeve and tried to like everybody. She put her carreer at court on the line for the love she bore her sister in law, she is supposed to have slapped another lady in waiting who had taken the fancy of PB.
She must have been a strong woman as after the fall and death of Anne B and her husband, there would have been a lot of whispering behind her back etc to contend with.

Alison Weir by the way has written a book about P.B’s illegitimate children.

Also, what’s the name of the book called?

Alison Weir’s book on PB children is called “The Children of England.”
Hope that helps.Smile

PB, stands for Plump Buttocks it’s my pet name for Henry 8th. I have a few names for him, but, PB is one of the nicer terms I have for him.
I have a lot of choice names for the Duke of Norfolk as well….Laugh
