Series title: The Wolf Hall trilogy
England, the 1520s. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is his chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant. Into this atmosphere of distrust and need comes Thomas Cromwell, first as Wolsey's clerk, and later his successor.
Beautifully written. I always think of Thomas Cromwell as being a nasty piece of work. As with all of us this shows he has a nicer side. I’m not sure how accurate it is. Very enjoyable.
