Description
Often portrayed as little more than a provincial nurse for the ailing Henry VIII, Katherine Parr was intelligent, ambitious, and attractive, contends the author of The Myth of "Bloody Mary". Twice widowed already when she married the king, the 30-year-old Katherine had also survived capture by the northern rebels in the uprising known as the Pilgrimage of Grace. After Henry's death, Katherine quickly—and scandalously—married her old flame Sir Thomas Seymour. As shown in this history, however, Katherine had a positive influence on her stepdaughter, the future Elizabeth I.

"Rich, perceptive, nuanced and creative, this first full-scale biography gives one of Britain's best but least-known queens her due."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
