Falling Pomegranate Seeds: All Manner of Things now published.
The 15th of January, 2021 marked the publication of Falling Pomegranate Seeds: All Manner of Things, my fourth Tudor novel.
On 15th of January, 1559, a young woman was crowned queen of England. A young woman who feared at twenty that she would follow the footsteps of her mother and end her life on a scaffold at the Tower of London. Entering the fortress as a yet uncrowned queen, Elizabeth said, “Some people have fallen from being Princes of this land, to be prisoners in this place. I am raised from a prisoner in this place to be a Prince of this land.”
My introduction to Elizabeth’s story as a child was what first fired my passion for Tudor history. There are times when I think all my years of learning about the Tudors and giving voice to Tudor personages in my fiction work is just preparing me for the day when I finally feel ready to write my Elizabeth novel. Now that All Manner of Things is at last published, I feel that day moving closer.
But today I am celebrating the publication of Falling Pomegranate Seeds: All Manner of Things.
I also celebrating yet another five star review – this one from the Coffee Pot Book Club:
Stay safe and well.
More praise for All Manner of Things.
“Dunn has written such a beautiful portrayal of the extraordinary tale of love and friendship between Katherine of Aragon and her lady in waiting Maria de Salinas…” Endo the road. Five stars. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
You will enjoy the historical accuracy but even more you will experience first-hand the power of friendship, faith and love. The novel is sprinkled with letters, poems, sonnets and songs to help broaden the journey and shed light on the truth but these creative expressions will pull you in to the emotional side of the story where you will cry, smile, wince, sigh. I highly recommend this heart felt, literary epic. Like the ancient bells tolling from the past, this novel will ring through the centuries. Five stars. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Cindy L. Spear.
I have read many historical fiction novels about the Tudors and their world and I have to say this novel is one of the pinnacle Tudor novels that I have ever read. This is the first time that I have read a novel by Wendy Dunn, but now I want to read her other works. If you want a sensational novel centered around the astounding friendship of Maria de Salinas and Katherine of Aragon, “Falling Pomegranate Seeds: All Manner of Things” by Wendy J. Dunn is a must-read for any Tudor nerd. Five stars. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
