In this prequel to The Six Wives of Henry VIII and Elizabeth R., Henry, Earl of Richmond James Maxwell lays the groundwork for the Protestant Reformation, and ushers in the birth of the Modern Era by reuniting England following the War of the Roses. Meanwhile, the reign of King Henry VIII, and the Renaissance, draw near. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Crown in jeopardy
Power in the land
The schooling of apes
The crowning of apes
The serpent and the comforter
The white Hart
A fly in the ointment
The princely gift
Do the sheep sin?
The man who never was
The strange shapes of reality
The fledgling
The king without a face.
