Katheryn emerges from the pages of this beautifully realised portrayal as beguiling, vivacious and, in the end, tragically naive . . .This novel will captivate you and break your heart. Utterly sublime
Weir demonstrates her deep knowledge of the period offering fascinating detail on all aspects of Tudor life. . .It is a profoundly moving story that lingers long after the last page is turned
Alison's sensitively drawn novel will change everyone's preconceptions
This is my favourite of the series
Alison Weir is an expert at weaving together historical detail, political powerplay and the feelings of a naive woman.
