Six Tudor Queens: Writing a New Story - Alison Weir

As I wasn't expecting much, I didn't think I could be disappointed. It was a free download and I thought it sounded interesting. I was hoping for some insight in to why she felt she needed to write the series and how she came across her 'new' information, that kind of thing. What I didn't expect was six pages of the usual blurb you get at the start of the book (publication information/ author biography) and the remaining ten pages just a very quick summary of history. I imagine that it could be quite a good place to start if you have never read anything about Henry VIIIs wives but if you have a basic knowledge then it just isn't worth it. Having said that it cost nothing and just a few minutes of my life so I am not complaining.
