Continuing the story of Henry VIII?s wives?from the author of The Spanish Bride and A Lady Raised High.

With a face better suited to a nun?s habit than a wedding dress, Jane Seymour has no suitors and few hopes. Then, her prospects brighten when she is granted a position at court as maid of honor to Queen Catherine. There, Jane watches as King Henry VIII ignores his aging wife, showering favor on the beautiful Anne Boleyn, the woman he would make his new queen.

But soon he tires of Anne and his wandering eye falls on Jane. Though she has feelings of affection for Henry, she cannot let herself be swept away by his attentions if she is to win not only his heart, but also the greatest prize of all?the Crown.

The preceeding book in the series dealt with Anne at least somewhat sympathetically, but in Plain Jane, Anne Boleyn is only a few steps removed from pure evil.

Plain Jane Critique Plain Jane does take a few missteps, the most annoying one being how long it takes Jane to realize the king has a romantic interest in her.
