Description
Widowed for the second time at age 31, Katherine Parr falls deeply in love with dashing courtier Thomas Seymour and hopes at last to follow her heart; alas, it is not to be. In this wonderful fictional portrait of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Katherine is obliged to return to court, where she attracts the attentions of the ailing, egotistical, dangerously powerful king, who quickly dispatches Thomas to the Continent. Unable to refuse a royal proposal, and all too aware of the fates of Henry's previous wives, Katherine prepares to become his sixth queen. With the Catholic faction on the rise once more, reformers being burned for heresy, and those close to the king vying for position, Katherine's survival seems unlikely. Yet as she treads the razor's edge of court intrigue, she never quite gives up on love.

"This is a superbly written novel.... [Elizabeth] Fremantle is surely a major new voice in historical fiction and this book is the answer to the question about what Hilary Mantel fans should read while waiting for the final part of her trilogy."Bookseller
