About the Book

A true and shocking ghost story about one of England’s most famous queens, Anne Boleyn. Witnessed on numerous occasions throughout the centuries at her historic home, Hever Castle, and the Tower of London, where she was executed, as well as many less familiar places you wouldn’t necessarily expect to find her, Anne Boleyn’s Ghost is considered to be one of the most frequently seen ghosts in the United Kingdom.

One day in 2009, a family visited Hever Castle on the five hundredth anniversary of King Henry the Eighth’s accession to the throne. An outing full of twists and turns, their day at the castle had a few surprises in store for them. As they walked through the castle’s ancient rooms, one of the family members – a budding photographer – unknowingly captured the ghost that has mystified so many individuals since her dramatic, and rather gruesome, end.
It is Anne Boleyn like you have never seen her before. Her Ghost no longer dwells in the shadows, but has appeared in her full glory in front of one, unsuspecting photographer’s lens. Almost five hundred years after she was executed at the Tower of London, Anne Boleyn appears not a day older than the day she lost her head.

This is the story of that family’s eventful day at Anne Boleyn’s historic home, Hever Castle, and the mysterious photographs they took.

Available on Amazon.

 

My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Anne Boleyn’s Ghost is set up differently than most books. The beginning is about the author and his family going to Hever Castle and taking photos when they were there. Most of the rest of the book is about Anne Boleyn. At the end there is a list of the many sightings of Anne Boleyn’s ghost and where she was sighted.

I’m not one to read a lot of history but the story about Anne Boleyn was interesting and engaging. I even cried when reading what she said before she was beheaded. I found the photos that Liam Archer had taken intriguing as well as all of the sightings of Anne Boleyn. I did think the beginning of the book was slow and the trip to the castle could have been quite a bit shorter.

I recommend Anne Boleyn’s Ghost to anyone interested in the paranormal or history.

 

About the Author

7751448Liam Archer was born and raised in the south east of England. Visiting castles and historical sites was a big part of his youth, and ever since he found his love for photography he has captured some of Britain’s most famous landmarks. His interest in ghosts and the supernatural was not something he ever thought he would come to write about; but after some very personal encounters with ghosts in his late teens and early twenties, the world beyond seemed to have revealed itself to him. And it wasn’t long until he became fully aware of that strange world when his own photography shed light upon it. Now he spends most of his time reading and writing, and of course doing his much loved photography.
