Have you heard of King Henry the VIII?  He was the King of England who is remembered for having six wives.  This is the story of Anne Boleyn who was his second wife.  What was Anne like?  Was she a young girl who was blindly in love with Henry?  Or was she a self-centered woman who set her sights on becoming Queen?  We meet Anne as a girl of four and learn about what her life was like growing up around royalty.  Anne was picked on by her older sister who loved pointing out Anne's imperfections.  You see, Anne was born with an ugly mole on her neck and a sixth finger on one hand.  She learned to overcome her flaws and eventually catches the eye of the King.  Find out what life was like for girls during that time.  And find out what Anne might have been like.
