Question from Leigh - Any read "A Tudor Story"?

Hi, I was wondering whether anyone had read the book 'A Tudor Story' by W.S. Pakenham-Walsh? If so, what was your take on it?

I confess I have not read the book, but since it is supposedly based on a series of "psychic revelations" received by the author and facilitated by "psychic mediums", I feel compelled to offer my opinion that the book is certainly bunk.

Yes, though I wouldn't recommend it. I can't really believe that Anne Boleyn has been talking to a priest for years, telling him about herself and Henry. It's an interesting idea for a book, but I didn't enjoy it much, it took a while to get into it.

Hi Monica, yes I read it recently and found it extremely odd. Not only that, even the most simple facts were inaccurate, such as Lady Rochford's first name, which, according to the author, is Frances?! I just wanted to know what everyone else thought about it.
