CAN’T WAIT WED – #TheMirrorAndTheLight by Hilary Mantel #AmReading #BookLove #HurryUp #WolfHall

I finally got round to pre-ordering my copy yesterday! I am so excited, I have a busy day next Thursday (5th) – PUBLICATION DAY – but I will be making time to read!

Who is with me?

I LOVED the first two books and I am SO excited for this one!

If I had been more organised I would have tired to squeeze in a re-read of the first two, but I have not been. WAY too many books and NEVER enough time!

Book Blurb:

‘If you cannot speak truth at a beheading, when can you speak it?’

England, May 1536. Anne Boleyn is dead, decapitated in the space of a heartbeat by a hired French executioner. As her remains are bundled into oblivion, Thomas Cromwell breakfasts with the victors. The blacksmith’s son from Putney emerges from the spring’s bloodbath to continue his climb to power and wealth, while his formidable master, Henry VIII, settles to short-lived happiness with his third queen, Jane Seymour.

Cromwell is a man with only his wits to rely on; he has no great family to back him, no private army. Despite rebellion at home, traitors plotting abroad and the threat of invasion testing Henry’s regime to breaking point, Cromwell’s robust imagination sees a new country in the mirror of the future. But can a nation, or a person, shed the past like a skin? Do the dead continually unbury themselves? What will you do, the Spanish ambassador asks Cromwell, when the king turns on you, as sooner or later he turns on everyone close to him?

With The Mirror and the Light, Hilary Mantel brings to a triumphant close the trilogy she began with Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. She traces the final years of Thomas Cromwell, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power, offering a defining portrait of predator and prey, of a ferocious contest between present and past, between royal will and a common man’s vision: of a modern nation making itself through conflict, passion and courage.

Sounds great, right!?!?!

And THE cover! I love it.

And although I don’t understand the title right now I am looking forward to that ‘AH!’ moment when I read the book. Or am I missing something obvious!?

Are you eagerly awaiting a copy of The Mirror and the light? Are you a #WolfHall fan?
