The one that got away

by Michael N on Mar 6, 2014

She was the sixth wife of King Henry VIII, and the one 'that got away'. Catherine Parr had been married twice before and both times widowed, when she was chosen by 'Auld King Henry' to be his sixth wife - two he had divorced, one died in childbirth, two had been executed. What had fate in store for her? Susan James describes Catherines life, before, during, and after the marriage to Henry brilliantly and well researched. You almost feel that you are there, in private life with her first two husbands, and at the sparkling and cruel Court of the Tudors, during all the intrigues and backstage stabbings. It is also a kind of thriller (if you don't now the outcome). Shall the 'mad' King, manipulated by his evil advisors, murder his sixth wife as he has done (by proxy) with two of his previous ones, or shall she manage to escape? Read the book, and see!
