The Concubine, by Norah Lofts
“A novel set in Tudor England that continues to move me on each reading—a beautifully written and emotionally complex book
about Anne Boleyn that is courageous enough to resist easy explanations of the English queen’s appeal and creates a woman
who could change the course of history with intelligence, style, and nerve tinged with recklessness, and driven by a dark
ambition that eventually devoured her.”
—Nancy Bilyeau’s second novel, The Chalice ($27, amazon.com), was published in March.
