NEW YORK – “Between Two Kings” (published by Xlibris) is Olivia Longueville’s debut alternate history novel in the new enthralling series about Anne Boleyn “The Queen of Two Kingdoms.” In this captivating tale of Anne Boleyn’s alternate life path, Anne evades her destined tragedy in May 1536, escapes from England, and later becomes the second woman in history, after Eleanor of Aquitaine, who marries two powerful kings.
In this riveting novel, Anne Boleyn becomes a central figure in a power play between her homicidal ex-husband, King Henry VIII of England, and her new spouse, King François I of France. With the King of France’s help, she seeks vengeance against King Henry and all those who betrayed her and designed her downfall in England. The old Anne Boleyn is dead – and the new Anne has learnt from the mistakes she committed, becoming a cold, reserved, and calculating woman who controls her emotions and behavior much more than she has ever done before.
“Anne Boleyn is one of the most unusual and notorious women in the history of England and Europe. I think there is a kind of similarity between Eleanor of Aquitaine and Anne Boleyn: they both were too unique, immensely intelligent, extremely ambitious, very willful and strong, and possessed titanic energy. The above drove me to envision a different story for Anne Boleyn as the Queen of France,” says Olivia Longueville.
“Between Two Kings” appeals to readers of historical fiction, particularly works covering the Tudor and the Renaissance periods, and those who admire and love Anne Boleyn, feeling aggrieved by her tragic and unjust death. The novel’s exotic plot contains many irresistible elements: rich, colorful descriptions of the Renaissance, rivalry between the English and the French monarchs, sophisticated court intrigues, as well as revenge, love and power.
