Crown & Sceptre: A New History of the British Monarchy, from Willam the Conqueror to Elizabeth II

Those already familiar with English history won’t find new material here but this would be a good introduction for others, and Borman’s bibliography leads to more focused biographies and histories.

Henry VIII: And the Men Who Made Him

A thorough read for all interested in the Tudor era, the Reformation, and the British monarchy.

The King's Witch

This engaging page-turner is enhanced by flawless prose and an absorbing plot, making it a perfect choice for fans of historical fiction and post-Tudor England. [See Prepub Alert, 1/18/18.]

The Private Lives of the Tudors: Uncovering the Secrets of Britain's Greatest Dynasty

Readers interested in the subject are sure to recognize some of the stories covered within these pages, but Borman's history expands well beyond public knowledge to the definite delight of Tudor fans.

Thomas Cromwell: The Untold Story of Henry VIII's Most Faithful Servant

Though it breaks little new ground, Borman's chronicle is a thorough and pleasantly readable study, much in line with John Schofield's The Rise and Fall of Thomas Cromwell. [See Prepub Alert, 7/21/14.]

Queen of the Conqueror

A highly useful work that sheds light on the life of a surprisingly obscure but important figure in English history. As Borman suggests, Matilda did perhaps serve as an exemplar for later authoritative q ueens such as Elizabeth I and Victoria.

Elizabeth's Women

When the historical record fails to dot an i or cross a t, Borman happily corrects the lapse here in her romantic history. This gossipy book will appeal to readers of historical fiction. Because Elizabeth much preferred playing with boys, a book about her women tells less than half the story.
