Comments: I loved this book, it definately shines new light on Jane Seymour. Very helpful in dispelling the "Plain Jane" ideal, Norton does a wonderful job of detailing Jane's short reign with letters and accounts from her time. Also, Norton does a very good job of fairly accounting Jane's questionable role in Anne Boleyn's downfall, Jane is neither excused or villified. Also, while most is speculation, some information in given on Jane's childhood, and also on Jane's time as a lady-in-waiting to KoA.
All in all, a good read, not quite the biography I was hoping for, but a good one none-the-less. Recommended!

Comments: I have recently just got back into reading, I read this book in about 4 days (which is pretty fast for me at the moment) so that means I enjoyed it and it is easy to read.

This book is amazing and explores myths concerning Jane's childhood and marriage such as Jane marrying Henry in the Wolfhall barn. It also contains good pictures - those who are like me and skip to the pictures before reading the book will be pleased. Norton also considers Jane's feelings on the possibilty of being regent for her son if Henry died.

Considering this is the first ever biography for Henry's third Queen, Norton has done pretty well for herself.
A must read for Jane fans!.
