Description
The author of The Concubine, about Anne Boleyn, and Eleanor the Queen also produced this 1969 novel based on the life of the first queen of King Henry VIII, Katharine of Aragon. A princess by birth, Katharine always held the highest aspirations for her life, never doubting a vision both she and her mother, Isabella of Spain, had of her becoming one of the great rulers of Europe. After a short-lived and childless marriage to sickly prince Arthur of England, Katharine finds herself handed down to his brother, the future king Henry VIII, a handsome, passionate man with whom she forms a strong bond of mutual admiration and love. Their relationship seems ideal—equals in status, ambition, and respect for each other—yet as the years go by, Henry becomes consumed by greed, paranoia, and arrogance, with a roving eye that has settled on the young Anne Boleyn. It is this obsession that will lead to his destruction and the humiliation of Katharine, the woman he once would have done anything to protect.

"This is everything that a good historical novel should be."—Guardian (London)
