(1 review) Write a Review

'This six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction' The Times

Alison Weir, historian and author of the Sunday Times-bestselling Six Tudor Queens series, relates one of the most tragic stories in English history: Katheryn Howard, Henry VIII's fifth queen.

A NAIVE YOUNG WOMAN AT THE MERCY OF HER AMBITIOUS FAMILY.

At just nineteen, Katheryn Howard is quick to trust and fall in love.

She comes to court. She sings, she dances. She captures the heart of the King.

Henry declares she is his rose without a thorn. But Katheryn has a past of which he knows nothing. It comes back increasingly to haunt her. For those who share her secrets are waiting in the shadows, whispering words of love... and blackmail.

KATHERYN HOWARD
THE FIFTH OF HENRY'S QUEENS.
HER STORY.

Acclaimed, bestselling historian Alison Weir draws on extensive research to recount one of the most tragic tales in English history - that of a lively, sweet but neglected girl, used by powerful men for their own gain.

History tells us she died too soon.
This mesmerising novel brings her to life.

'Well researched and engrossing' Good Housekeeping

'Utterly gripping and endlessly surprising' Tracy Borman

    Book 5 of Alison Weir's Tudor Queens

    Posted by Diana Conner on 28th Dec 2020

    I have read all the books in this series. I was eager for this book to be published. It didn't disappoint, I couldn't put it down. Amazing research and characters, I felt very sad and sorry for young Katheryn. Each book in this series gets better than the one before. I will look forward to Book 6!
