Omschrijving

The Story of Katherine Parr
Dangerous court intrigue and affairs of the heart collide as renowned novelist Jean Plaidy tells the story of Katherine Parr, the last of Henry VIIIs six queens.Henry VIIIs fifth wife, Katherine Howard, was both foolish and unfaithful, and she paid for it with her life. Henry vowed that his sixth wife would be different, and she was. Katherine Parr was twice widowed and thirty-one years old. A thoughtful, well-read lady, she was known at court for her unblemished reputation and her kind heart. She had hoped to marry for love and had set her heart on Thomas Seymour, the dashing brother of Henrys third queen. But the aging kingmore in need of a nurse than a wifewas drawn to her, and Katherine could not refuse his proposal of marriage.Queen Katherine was able to soothe the Kings notorious temper, and his three children grew fond of her, the only mother they had ever really known. Trapped in a loveless marriage to a volatile tyrant, books were Katherines consolation. But among her intellectual pursuits was an interest in Lutheranisma religion that the king saw as a threat to his supremacy as head of the new Church of England. Courtiers envious of the Queens influence over Henry sought to destroy her by linking her with the radical religious reformers. Henry raged that Katherine had betrayed him, and had a warrant drawn up for her arrest and imprisonment. At court it was whispered that the king would soon execute yet another wife. Henrys sixth wife would have to rely on her wits to survive where two other women had perished. . . .From the Trade Paperback edition.
