The Light in the Labyrinth

Wendy J. Dunn
Paperback, Kindle


“…a terrific read not just for young adults, but for all ages. Wendy has done a fantastic job bringing to life a young Katherine Carey that anyone who has ever been a teenager can identify with. It was refreshing to see Anne through the eyes of an innocent who had not yet been jaded by the intrigues at Henry’s Court…”

Dear Heart, How Like You This?

Wendy J. Dunn
Paperback, Kindle


This is a new 2017 edition in paperback and Kindle formats.


Dear Heart is a heart-rending tale of love and loss. Narrated by the poet Thomas Wyatt, the reader embarks on a fascinating journey that takes us from the yews of Hever Castle in Kent to the intrigue-laden courts of England, France, and Rome, as Wyatt recalls his desperate, and often helpless, desire for a woman whom he cannot save – the ill-fated Anne Boleyn.

“I love this book and couldn’t get enough of it. Wendy Dunn does a good job of describing the sequence of events that led to Anne Boleyn’s rise and downfall. This book was so well written that one feels as if they were Thomas Wyatt, feeling every emotion he was going through, and the depth of his love for Anne Boleyn. Alot of detail is also given about Thomas Wyatt’s political/court career on the continent. Overall, a very enjoyable and historically accurate read.” – Amazon review.

My Anna was dark and lovely—full of life’s burning light. How strongly my love’s fire did blaze. Too strong, yea, too strong for this world. For her bright, burning light has forever been put out; aye, put out, and my life is eternally dark. Too dark tout de suite for me to ever see the end of my despair…
