In this sequel to the Man Booker Prize-winning “Wolf Hall,” Hilary Mantel explores the destruction of Anne Boleyn. When Henry VIII visits Wolf Hall, Thomas Cromwell watches as Henry falls in love with the silent Jane Seymour. The minister sees what is at stake: not just the king’s pleasure, but the safety of the nation. As he eases a way through the sexual politics of the court, he must negotiate a “truth” that will satisfy Henry and secure his own career.
