The Light in the Labyrinth: The Last Days of Anne Boleyn.
IN THE WINTER OF 1535, young Kate Carey lives with her mother and her new family, far from the royal court. Unhappy with her life and wanting to escape her home, she accepts the invitation of Anne Boleyn, the aunt she idolises, to join her household in London.
The dark, dangerous labyrinth of Henry VIII's court forces Kate to grow up fast as she witnesses her aunt's final tragic days - and then she discovers a secret that changes her life forever.
All things must end-all things but love.
"The Light in the Labyrinth is the compelling story of a teenager who witnesses the final days of Anne Boleyn, the tragic second wife of Henry VIII. Young adults will be enthralled by the romance and political suspense swirling around the court of the notorious Henry VIII, and they will fall in love with Queen Anne in Dunn's wonderful retelling of her tragic story." - Sandra Worth, author of the award-winning Rose of York trilogy.
"Wendy J. Dunn explores the final days of Queen Anne Boleyn through the eyes of the 14 year old Catherine Carey, and in doing so composes a lovely and poignant "coming of age" story. Though written in the third person, the novel is composed solely through the narrator's glimpse inside the keyhole of Catherine Carey's experiences. In using this approach, Queen Anne Boleyn's tragic final five months of life take on the drama, magical thinking, naivety and raw emotion so common of early teenagers."
"The Light in the Labyrinth is quite the read - no matter the age of the reader. And yes, thanks to Kate, a new voice has been added to the well-known haunting melody - a voice that mellows and matures as the story evolves and yet retains a touch of bitter-sweet innocence right to the bloody, inevitable end. It is with regret I close the covers on Kate's story..."
