Don’t Lose Your Head by Harriet Marsden

If you like reading about Henry Vlll and his six wives you will enjoy this quick read. This is written in the first person or ghost as you will learn. Each wife explains a little about how they felt being the wife of Henry Vlll. Each person seemed to have a much different Henry. I love how each of the previous wives gets in a few jabs at the other. I got in quite a few laughs while learning some history. I received a copy of this book from Pacific and Court for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I give this book a five out of five stars.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Survive alongside Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, and the rest of King Henry VIII’s ill-fated wives with this witty book of essential life advice, history, and trivia–the perfect handbook for fans of the hit musical Six.

Get the inside scoop from some of the toughest women in English history, as ex-wives, mothers, and daughters of King Henry VIII dish out all their survival secrets in this humorous guide to life. With a bit of sarcasm and friendly charm, each of these legendary ladies explains how their 16th-century hard-earned lessons (from living with unstable men to stifling Tudor traditions) apply to 21st-century dating, marriage, and feminism.

Written from the perspectives of each of the different women around Henry VIII, you’ll get the facts from the Queen Mother and the less-remembered but no less important Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and more.
