Today's Teaser: King's Fool A Nortorious King, His Six Wives, and the One Man Who Knew All Their Secrets~Margaret Campbell Barnes

I am loving this book. This subject never gets old to me, and I always love to read a different perspective. This is written in first person by the King's fool Will Somers about his life in Henry's court with Henry and his six wives. Originally published in 1959 , now reprinted with a beautiful new cover in 2009.

" I let the pups slide down my body and, standing there motionless in the warm morning sunlight, it was as if an arrow loosed by some unseen archer had pierced my heart."

"Men turned and stared, mouths agape, and all that was decent in most of us momentarily envied him from the safe distance of our contemptible subservience to easy living."


  1. I'm sure many have already read The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory, but it happens to be my current read, so here it goes...

    "A younger sister who is prettier than her," Elizabeth reminded me. "A younger sister who looks like a pure Tudor and not like a half-caste Spaniard".

    "And a queen who could set aside common sense fo her lust was not fit to rule. Better to overthrow a queen maddened by desire in her old age than suffer a Spanish tyrant".

    Sorry these happen to be negative on the Spanish, but that just happened to be on the page.

  2. Very interesting! This book is on my TBR list.

  3. I like historical fiction of this era. Good teaser.
