The season was past, but there was still a supply of apples in the storerooms, and so I was left a tray of them each day. I ate them all by evening, touching little else, and asked for more. I ate them all by evening, touching little else, and asked for more er they grew pithy from age as the winter progressed, I asked for more. As I depleted the supply of apples, Henry gave instructions that they should be rationed to all others to ensure I had enough. By February they were gone, even the pithiest among them and I was left to settle for dried ones. These carried me through until the earliest apples could be harvested in summer.

It's more of a character study with Anne Boleyn being the theme character. In this book Anne is established in first person voice then followed through a look at her own life

This is an unusual look at Anne, from her point of view. A look at her "present" life back into past lives and into future lives from ancient Egypt where Anne was forced to make a life of prostitution under the Pyraminds and flashing forward to the seventies. All the time Henry becomes part of Anne's world, either as a friend, brother or husband. It's more of a character study with Anne Boleyn being the theme character. In this book Anne is established in first person voice then followed through a look at her own life. This is quite well done.

In 1536, Henry and Anne are at the mercy of influences outside their control, explosively incompatible, and caught in a marriage that ends in betrayal so shocking that Anne requires lifetimes to recover.Henry, seemingly in defense of Anne (but more likely acting out of "stubborn perverseness," she observes), terrorizes England and decrees widespread political murder in order to protect her. Ultimately, to Anne's horror, this once passionate husband turns on her and has her executed as well.Threads, a reincarnation fantasy, opens with Anne's execution. Her fury at her husband s betrayal has enough momentum to survive centuries, but in Threads she learns that she has been assigned a hard task: she must review their history together through a number of past lives, and find it within herself to forgive him. This may prove difficult and take some time. The husband in question is Henry Tudor, the notorious Henry VIII. The narrator is the stubborn, volatile Anne Boleyn, who is not at all inclined to forgive. It is a very unusual love story.William Faulkner Competition finalist for best novel. Nell Gavin is also author of HANG ON, which was awarded the Living Now Book Awards silver medal, and was chosen by Red Adept Reviews as a "Red Adept Select" title voted "outstanding in its genre."

Anne Boleyn: How much as been written about her and how much actually known, from historical accounts to historical fiction? Books and movies.
This is an unusual look at Anne, from her point of view. A look at her "present" life back into past lives and into future lives from ancient Egypt where Anne was forced to make a life of prostitution under the Pyraminds and flashing forward to the seventies. All the time Henry becomes part of Anne's world, either as a friend, brother or husband. It's a fascinating narrative a mixture of history and fantasy. A mixture of lives intermingled with Anne and her cosmic "Voice" that explains her lives, makes her look into they "why's events had to happen the way they did and pointed her into the direction of her next life.

Fascinating. It makes one not only look at Anne Boleyn, herself, but the possibility of "is this the way heaven really is?" Is reincarnation real? Does God want to make our lives--not easier--but lessons for our next adventure. And, the ever present thought "what is life all about, if not for the betterment of our souls and for others?"

I took me a long time to open up this book to read on my Kindle, six months or more. I bought it on a whim as I've been interested in Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII for a very long time and have studied the history from original sources and scholarly works for forty years or more. I didn't expect much from a fictional book about Anne being reincarnated.

Once I started reading, however, I couldn't put it down. The story and writing are flowing, lyrical, and, for me, completely engrossing. This isn't an historical novel, though there is certainly a good bit of history in it. It's more of a character study with Anne Boleyn being the theme character. In this book Anne is established in first person voice then followed through a look at her own life. This is quite well done. I did not agree with every historical decision the author made, but it didn't matter. She sold me well enough on her choices to make this interpretation of Anne very real and convincing. And some of the analysis and observations of Anne, those surrounding her, and her life and life choices were very insightful and gave me a new way to view some established historical interpretations and information.

Then comes the magical part of the reading experience. Once Anne's character is established, we follow her through other lifetimes in which Anne and Henry, and other well-knowns from the Tudor court, are cast in entirely different roles yet are still the same people. They are prostitutes at the time of building the pyramids in Egypt, lower-class traveling entertainers in Holland, Chinese peasants, and on through lives closer to the present. Each lifetime brings them--Anne primarily--a lesson about herself, who she is, and how she behaves, and lets her see Henry in a more sympathetic way. This entire approach could have gone horribly awry had it been less deftly worked, but I found myself enthralled and fascinated by the seamless flow and compelling stories.

I didn't particularly care for the way the book ended. The character focus got off a bit, getting too much out of Anne and into Henry, and it was a soft, blurry ending rather than a definite conclusion, not to my liking though it was appropriate to the novel's pattern. The final segment also seemed just a bit hasty compared to the pacing throughout the rest of the piece. But that is a minor downcheck as this isn't a plot/conclusion/resolution sort of novel in any case.

I don't think this book is going to be to everyone's taste, but it worked very well for me and I will be looking for more by this author.

I 'stalked' this book for several weeks before I committed to the buy. I was intrigued from the start by the blurb. But I thought the concept would be fraught with pitfalls if not handled with a deft hand. Nell Gavin has that deft hand and she deserves high praise for this unique work.
In this work, a familiar character is made new again. I have reads several novels containing accounts of the life and death of Anne Boleyn. But never have I felt as if I understood her. In this case, I felt I differently. I know it is a fictional work, and many of the memories and attributes given to this version of Anne Boleyn have been proven false. So of course I am not getting to know the Anne Boleyn. But I did get to know Gavin's Anne Boleyn very well indeed.
Following Anne through her examinations of her many mistakes, and seeing the connection between the events of many lives, was very entertaining.
I do not recommend this to those who are looking for historical accuracy or to those who must have works presented in a linear fashion. I would recommend it to those who enjoy rich storytelling and language. And to those who understand that a truly unique concept should not be missed, especially one that is handled as well as this.

I quite enjoyed "Threads: The Reincarnation of Anne Boleyn". Y favorite aspect of the story was the 'lesson' being taught, both to "Anne" as her soul reviewed the most 'recent life' as Queen of England as Henry Tudor VIII's doomed 2nd wife And the one speaking to the reader. The idea that the two lived many lives interacting and partnering both before and after That lifetime, and that the ongoing lesson for their souls to learn and share Forgiveness resonated strongly with me. I am not practiced at writing reviews and will not recount the story,as many do; however, suffice to say it not only pulled me in, the storyline kept and continues to stick in my mind as I go through my day-to-day life and trials. We all do many things to hurt and are hurt by those we love,most of all, so the 'lesson' of this novel really touched me. Some reviewers said they had a difficult time accepting the idea of these two enigmatic people reincarnating, in particular to some of the people the author imagined. For me, I not only found those lives acceptable possibilities, but also very Likely when we look at some of the facts we do know about Anne and King Henry. I recommend the novel to anyone who has an interest in alternative spiritual experiences and that of a soul existing in a 'hereafter' and on earth beyond the present lifetime. I gave 4 stars only because there were some characters and episodes I would've liked more had Nell ex
