Hi, I'm new to this forum, having just found this site this week. Has anyone here read “Threads” by Nell Gavin http://www.nellgavin.com/. It's a pretty cool fictional story about Anne Bolyen and Henry VIII being reincarnated through the years. I found it quite interesting.

It's one of my favourite Anne books – and I'm constantly telling anyone who'll listen they should read it!  I really like how Nell Gavin portrayed Anne's character, neither flat-out saint or sinner.  And the journey Anne's soul takes throughout the book to forgive Henry is wonderful.

Hi Julia,  I have read “Threads.”  This is one of my favoite books.  I love thinking that Anne and Henry could be together in future lives.  Love the concept of Anne being able to be with Henry, love him and eventually forgive him.  Although I wasn't surprised it took so many lifetimes for her to forgive him…LOL  I recommend this book to everyone.

I bought the book this summer, but have yet to read it. Now that I am finally done of my Masters degree, I may get around to reading it. I'm glad to hear that you guys like the book. Based upon your opinions, I'm sure I'll like it too!

I love this book. Its beautiful…as for historical accuracy, take it with a grain of salt. However, for whatever flaws it may have, I find it beautiful. The idea that love travels through lifetimes, and that you can gain forgiveness and healing for your actions I find hopeful. This is clearly a fantasy novel which is why I don’t have any bitterness for whatever inaccuracies there are. Also, its a fun read where you get to see different incarnations of these historical characters that you are invested in. It is definitely an original idea and for lovers of Anne, it doesn’t do her any ill turns, but is wholly sympathetic.
