The sequel to Hilary Mantel's 2009 Man Booker Prize winner and "New York Times" bestseller, "Bring Up the Bodies" delves into the heart of Tudor history with the downfall of Anne Boleyn.
Though he battled for years to marry her--a story told in "Wolf Hall"--Henry is now disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son, and her sharp intelligence alienates his old friends and the noble families of England. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down. Over a few terrifying weeks, Cromwell ensnares her in a web of conspiracy, while the demure Jane Seymour waits her turn for the poisoned wedding ring. But Anne and her powerful family will not yield without a ferocious struggle, and to defeat the Boleyns, Cromwell must now ally himself with his enemies. What price will he pay for Anne's head?
Hailed around the world as a stunning literary achievement, "Bring Up the Bodies" evokes this frightening episode of English history as no book has before.
