My Review:

Being almost as big a fan of history and the wives of Henri VIII as it sounds like our author is, this book all but leaped off the page for me to read.  When I realized it was written in the first person, I was even more excited since I then felt like Anne herself was speaking to me.  What a novelty and gift at the same time.

I had always looked at Anne as something of a brat and it was Henry's first wife, Cathrine of Aragon who was degraded, mistreated and overlooked.  After Lady Anne's sentence to the Tower and reading what could well have been her personal and painful feelings, well, I may want to re-think that.

I was so impressed that Ms.Walters was willing to tackle such a challenging historical character as a novice author.  As I am in the process of writing my first releasable books, I know how much chutzpah it takes and feel she did a very good job for a first book.  If you too love historical fiction and/or Anne Bolyn in particular, you will truly enjoy this book.


I received a free ARC of this book at my request and am voluntarily leaving a review.

About Holly-Eloise Walters:

Holly-Eloise is from Bristol, England. Her lifelong passion of all things history, especially Tudor history, has imbued her with a feeling of connection to Anne Boleyn, the Queen of Henry VIII and mother of Queen Elizabeth I. Holly-Eloise feels a kinship with the strength and sense of self that Anne displayed. 
Holly-Eloise comes from a large family (she is the eldest of seven!) and family is most important to her. Her family includes many friends, both in England and online. Holly cites her nan as her biggest influence as she urged Holly to read anything and everything, and in doing so, Holly found her passion for writing. “I am extremely passionate about writing and have found that it is something that has been given to me to put my stamp on the world. I love that I can talk through my writing.” 
Holly-Eloise’s debut novel, The Most Happy, presents a new and fresh look at the life of Anne Boleyn. Her novel was published on October 5, 2019, to amazing reviews!
