England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. If the king dies without a male heir, the country could be destroyed by civil war. Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of twenty years and marry Anne Boleyn. The pope and most of Europe opposes him. Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell: a wholly original man, a charmer and a bully, both idealist and opportunist, astute in reading people, and implacable in his ambition. But Henry is volatile: one day tender, one day murderous. Cromwell helps him break the opposition, but what will be the price of his triumph? In inimitable style, Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall is "a darkly brilliant reimagining of life under Henry VIII. . . . Magnificent." (The Boston Globe).
Well Read - We do our best to ensure the quality of our books, but there is no escaping the wear and tear that comes with time. Pages might be yellowing or largely annotated, with some foxing on the exterior of the book. This is a well-read book, but this also means that the previous owner probably really enjoyed it! This category also includes books that are heavily annotated but are otherwise in a clean condition without brown spots.
