The poignant story of the marriages of Catherine Parr, King Henry VIII’s sixth wife. From the author of the bestselling “The Queen’s Midwife”.
Another compelling novel about the passion and intrigue within the Royal Court in Tudor England.
Catherine Parr, Lady Latymer, is already twice-widowed when King Henry VIII asks her to be his queen. Too fearful to refuse, the young woman forsakes love and desire for marriage to the old king.
While she finds happiness in her relationship with the King’s children – the Princesses Mary and Elizabeth, and Prince Edward, her heart remains true to her only love, Thomas Seymour.
But poor Catherine is just a pawn in scheming Seymour’s game to seek greater honours for himself.
