NEW YORK (AP) — British author Hilary Mantel is ready to complete her million-selling trilogy of Thomas Cromwell novels.
Henry Holt and Company announced Wednesday that "The Mirror & the Light" comes out in the U.S. on March 10, 2020, five days after HarperCollins Publishers releases it in the U.K. The first two Cromwell novels, "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies," each won the Man Booker Prize. Mantel said in a statement that the novels have been a "long journey" through Cromwell's rise in the court of King Henry VIII and the "last miles" to the scaffold at Tower Hill, where he was beheaded in 1540.
"Wolf Hall" was published in 2009, and "Bring Up the Bodies" in 2012. Worldwide sales for the two books top 5 million copies.
