A great read about Catherine Parr's early life. She was portrayed rather well, but some of the information about Anne Bourchier/Parr is inaccurate. The book documents her early marriages and later regency as Queen of England.
'Cat' Parr was the last wife of Henry VIII. This book tells of her life before her marriage to the famous king and paints an intriguing picture of court life. The reader is shown that Henry VIII was a dangerous and moody man, yet people were drawn to him. An enjoyable read.
An excellent account of the sixth and last wife of Henry VIII. An often ignored queen- and one who was able to keep her head following her loveless marriage to the repulsive king.
Catherine Parr meets her royal husband when she is only six years old on the Field of Gold when Henry is greeting Francis of France. She also meets her future rival, Anne Boleyn. Even though Anne has been executed by the time Catherine marries Henry, Anne''s shadow follows every successor. But this is not just about being Henry''s wife - Catherine has two husbands before Henry and one after his death. As the only one to survive this famous monarch, Catherine''s brains must lead her through the thorny path of the Royal Court in a time where anyone may lose their head. This compelling read exposes the life of one of Henry VIII''s wives in a manner that stirs the reader''s interest in a life previously unappreciated by other writers.
