The Queen and the Heretic

Devon Life - - Plastic - by Derek Wil­son

Devon based Derek is a highly ac­claimed au­thor of over 50 books. His lat­est is the tale of two remarkable young women ahead of their time. Derek ex­plores the con­nec­tion be­tween Cather­ine Parr (the only wife of Henry VIII to sur­vive her hus­band) and Ann Askew, a name pos­si­bly not so fa­mil­iar. Both women were pioneers, pub­lish­ing work on their protes­tant be­liefs un­der their own names. A dual nar­ra­tive, this is an ex­cel­lent study of pol­i­tics and so­ci­ety of Tu­dor Eng­land. Pub­lished by Lion Hud­son. Pa­per­back £8.99
