The teenage Mary Rose is his favourite sister. He even named his famous ship after her.  But he still pushed her into a hateful state marriage with ancient King Louis XII of France.

However, a reluctant Mary Rose, is as strong-willed as Henry. She’s also passionately in love, for the first  time.

So before she agrees to the match, Mary Rose extracts a promise from Henry. A promise she is determined he will keep.


Very easy to read, very hard to put down. This made Mary Tudor so accessible and relatable.’ READER REVIEW

‘Thoroughly enjoyable.’ READER REVIEW

‘Really liked reading this book. it helped me understand so much more about Mary’s perspective of events, and her King Henry VIII (her brother’s) duplicity, coldness and greed where she was concerned. He made things financially miserable for the Brandons literally for their entire lifetime. He didn’t have to do that – and shouldn’t have done that to his beloved sister. 

‘Very much hope that author Geraldine Evans continues writing more about the Tudor’s (marriages, children or family) – or King Charles II mistress Barbara Castlemaine – or even Mary Queen of Scots. It will be a good read.’ READER REVIEW
