Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir

Of all the women associated with medieval royalty, these six are undoubtedly the most famous (and written about). Taking their perspective, rather than that of King Henry VIII, was an intriguing way to frame the book. Weir's books are always thoughtful and well-researched, and this book is no exception. Plus, it's a great companion to the TV show The Tudors!
