Prose – My Lady of Cleves

Image (22)

I enjoyed “My Lady of Cleves” by Margaret Campbell Barnes. The historical  novel tells the story of the fourth wife of Henry VIII, Anne of Cleves. She kept her head in every way. When faced with Henry’s dislike and wandering eye, she devoted herself to being agreeable and endeared herself to his family and inner circle of friends. A very wise lady in a very trying situation. She learned to thrive by involving herself in the lives of others rather than concentrating on her own problems. A good lesson for us all.

Thanks so much for your comments. They fill my life with sunshine.
