About The Book:
Divorced. Murdered. Died. Divorced. Departed. Survived.
A modern take on the life and marriages of Henry VIII, if he were a 21st century womanizing media mogul rather than the king of England.
Master of the universe Harry Rose is head of the Rose Corporation, number eighteen on the Forbes rich list, and recently married to wife number six. But in 2018, his perfect world is about to come crashing to the ground. His business is in the spotlight–and not in a good way–and his love life is under scrutiny. Because behind a glittering curtain of lavish parties, gorgeous homes, and a media empire is a tale worthy of any tabloid.
And Harry has a lot to account for.
About The Author:
Olivia Hayfield is the pen name of British author Sue Copsey. Sue is usually to be found in her office editing other people’s books, while Olivia is likely to be in her writing hut at the bottom of the garden, wondering what well-known historical characters would be like if they were alive today.
Sue worked for several years as a press officer at London Zoo, and then became an editor at Dorling Kindersley UK. She and her husband later moved to New Zealand, where Sue continues to work in publishing. She is also the author of several children’s books, including The Ghosts of Tarawera, which received a Notable Book Award from the Storylines Children’s Literature Trust of New Zealand. Wife After Wife is her first adult novel. Sue lives in Auckland with her husband and two children.
You don’t have to be a Tudor aficionado to adore Wife After Wife, however, those in the know will be especially delighted with this modern-day retelling of the six wives of Henry VIII. For all others, Hayfield’s clever novel is a delicious read for anyone looking to sink into a big juicy story about love, lust, betrayal and other unfortunate consequences of the heart.”—Renee Rosen, bestselling author of Park Avenue Summer
“This page-turner will delight both Tudorphiles and readers who love a dishy tell all about rich people behaving badly.”—Booklist
“This story will resonate with readers, even those less familiar with British royal history. For fans of updated Jane Austen books, such as Soniah Kamal’s Unmarriageable and Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible, and those who are ready to branch out.” –Library Journal
