Thomas Cromwell : the untold story of Henry VIII's most faithful servant by Tracy Borman( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Henry VIII's right-hand man, Cromwell was the architect of the English Reformation, secured Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon and plotted the downfall of Anne Boleyn, and upon his arrest, was accused of trying to usurp the King himself. Borman reveals a different side of one of the most notorious figures in history: that of a caring husband and father, a fiercely loyal servant and friend, and a revolutionary who helped make medieval England into a modern state. His seismic political, religious, and social reforms had an impact that can still be felt today. This is the true story of a controversial and enigmatic man who forever changed the shape of his country

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Borman's biography reveals a woman who was far more than the mistress to King George II. She was a dedicated patron of the arts, a lively and talented intellectual, a victim of violence and adultery, and a passionate advocate for the rights of women.

Henrietta Howard king's mistress, queen's servant by Tracy Borman( )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henrietta Howard, later Countess of Suffolk, was the long-term mistress and confidante of George II. Orphaned at twelve and dragged into poverty by her brutal husband, Henrietta used her own ingenuity and determination to secure a role at the very heart of the royal court. But she was far more than mistress to the King: a dedicated patron of the arts; a lively and talented intellectual; a passionate advocate for the rights of women long before the dawn of feminism. The mark that this enigmatic royal mistress left on the society and culture of early Georgian England was to resonate well beyond the confines of the court, and can still be felt today

Witches : a tale of sorcery, scandal and seduction by Tracy Borman( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"September 1613. In Belvoir Castle, the heir of one of England's great noble families falls suddenly and dangerously ill. His body is 'tormented' with violent convulsions. Within a few short weeks he will suffer an excruciating death. Soon the whole family will be stricken with the same terrifying symptoms. The second son, the last male of the line, will not survive. It is said witches are to blame. And so the Earl of Rutland's sons will not be the last to die. Witches traces the dramatic events which unfolded at one of England's oldest and most spectacular castles four hundred years ago. The case is among those which constitute the European witch craze of the 15th-18th centuries, when suspected witches were burned, hanged, or tortured by the thousand. Like those other cases, it is a tale of superstition, the darkest limits of the human imagination and, ultimately, injustice - a reminder of how paranoia and hysteria can create an environment in which nonconformism spells death. But as Tracy Borman reveals here, it is not quite typical. The most powerful and Machiavellian figure of the Jacobean court had a vested interest in events at Belvoir.He would mastermind a conspiracy that has remained hidden for centuries."--Publisher's description
