Product Details


“An exquisitely drawn, poignant portrayal of one of history’s most complex, maligned, and fascinating figures . . . Told with all of Alison Weir’s characteristic verve and eye for evocative period detail, this is a book that will stay with you long after the last page has been turned. . . . A must for Tudor fans everywhere.”—Tracy Borman, author of Anne Boleyn & Elizabeth I

“Utterly convincing and eminently readable . . . This is Alison Weir’s most humane—and most personal—novel yet. Her huge fund of historical knowledge allows her to tackle head-on the challenge of our most controversial queen, at once beleaguered girl and the ‘Bloody Mary’ of black legend. The result is a Mary Tudor we can all accept, without having always to admire.”—Sarah Gristwood, author of The Tudors in Love

“What a totally absorbing read and remarkable novel . . . I was utterly enthralled by the way Weir so skillfully shows the gradual evolution of Mary Tudor, from the tender, brave, and resolute little girl into the desperate woman, so broken by her marriage and the constant political and religious deceits and manipulations around her. It is Weir’s great skill that shows us in the child a glimpse of the compassionate queen that Mary might have been, which really drives home the tragedy of her story in a way I’d never understood it before.”—Karen Maitland, author of Company of Liars

“Thrilling and captivating, this is a brilliant rendering of Mary Tudor and her world. Alison Weir welcomes us into her vivid, tragic, and dangerous life. Beautifully evoked, The Passionate Tudor is unforgettable.”—Kate Williams, author of The Betrayal of Mary, Queen of Scots
