A great resource on Henry and the wives. Antonia Fraser gives interesting perspective and tried to be as balanced as possible. I'd also recommend Alison Weir's book by the same name to read afterwards for a slightly different angle, especially on the Katherine of Aragon/Anne Boleyn situation.

Excellent book. As the king grew less tolerant with each new wife, the successors had to be very careful or the penalty was death.

Fantastic book detailing the 6 wives of Henry VIII and the events leading up to their marriages and demises. Told in a story like fashion, this book is easy to read and accurate with many references from the historical documents to back up the information. I could not put this book down!
