England, 1520. Thomas Wolsey has just staged the most magnificent event of the century and his reputation as a statesman has never been greater. He has kings and emperors hanging on his every word and can be forgiven for believing the world is his for the asking.
But this is an illusion soon shattered. The European peace he hoped for is destroyed as foreign monarchs commit acts of aggression against one another, while at home, King Henry VIII is having a crisis of conscience that threatens the very stability of his realm.
Henry fears England will descend into civil war when he dies. He desperately needs a son and looks to Thomas to help him get one.
Thomas has a new mission: secure Henry's divorce from Katherine of Aragon so he can marry his new love, Anne Boleyn.
But Thomas struggles to deliver the king's great matter, and Henry is growing impatient at the delay. He's ready to listen to Thomas's enemies who claim the cardinal is deliberately stalling.
Time is running out. The sharks are closing in.
Thomas must get the divorce, or risk losing not only the king's love, but his life.
Forsaken is the third and final book in the Tudor historical fiction series, The Thomas Wolsey Trilogy.
