Threads: The Reincarnation of Anne Boleyn - Nell Gavin

This is an unusual love story. Strictly speaking, it's not Historical romance and it's not just about the Tudor's, but because the main character is Anne Boleyn you'd be forgiven for thinking so.

It's all a bit far fetched and confusing... but in a good way. It's a new slant on Anne and Henry, iconic 16th century lovers at war.

The main storyteller is Anne Boleyn, she has to go through a series of reincarnations to learn her 'lesson'. Obviously she has to forgive Henry VIII, who it transpires has been her husband over many lifetimes. It always ends the same way, Henry lets Anne down and Anne dissapoints Henry. They have issues that they need to work through and it's taking centuries to get to the bottom of the problem.

The problem is, whilst living the life (any and all of the reincarnations) Anne and Henry have no notion of what they are here to do.

It's heartbreaking and rewarding and frustrating all at the same time, for us the reader AND Henry and Anne. I got so involved with the story and kept wanting to shout and tell them what they needed to do to be happy, to save them further heartache.
I can't do it justice in a few paragraphs, I wouldn't know where to start. There's Anne and Henry from Tudor times, there's egypt, the circus, modern's all here.

I loved it. It's different to most books with a Tudor theme and it's an unusual book with just enough familiar things to make it enjoyable, and just enough unfamiliar to make it exciting.
