By turns thrilling, dramatic and touching, this is the story of Henry the Eighth and Catherine of Aragon's divorce as you've never heard it before - from the eyes of their daughter, Princess Mary.

"...she is a brilliant storyteller, whose flair for drama soon lures you in"

Some might quibble with Worsley's version of events. But she is a brilliant storyteller, whose flair for drama soon lures you in.

"When it comes to history I am shameless," she has said. "I will do whatever it takes to get people involved." The result is another Tudor "soap opera", of which any author should be proud.

"I look forward to recommending Lady Mary to my readers"

I look forward to recommending Lady Mary to my readers, although I sense I may not have to do a great deal of promotion on this occasion, as my team of eager reviewers are already doing a tremendous job of recommending this book to their friends.
