"a detailed and convincing portrait of an extraordinary life"

The first of Alison Weir’s novels in the Six Tudor Queens series was published in 2016. Now, almost 5,000 pages later, she closes the hexalogy about Henry VIII’s wives with this captivating chronicle of Katharine Parr...

After Henry’s death, Katharine’s life promises a fairytale ending, with Seymour as Prince Charming. But this is a biographical novel not a fiction, and life is messier and more complicated than happy-ever-afters. Like its predecessors, this is a detailed and convincing portrait of an extraordinary life. Taken as a whole, this series is a serious achievement.
