5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic!!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 January 2021
wow.. WoW... WOW!!!!! What a fantastic book!! It’s very insightful and Alison Weir has done an amazing job at creating a fiction that stays true to the historical facts from the period of 1501 when Katherine landed in England to marry Arthur, through to her death in 1536.

What I enjoyed the most was how Alison portrayed this from Katherines point of view, and how she took into account what Katherine knew about the events going on around her and how she would of found out about what was going on in the world. Chapuys being her main link.

After reading lots of books on the Tudors there have been questions surrounding Katherine as to whether her marriage to Arthur was consummated. Many people believe that it was consummated and that it was a noble lie of Katherine as her purpose was to be Queen of England. But with recent research by Giles Tremlett and Patrick Williams it now looks certain that her marriage to Arthur was not consummated. I really like how Alison has portrayed this in the book.

Honestly out of all the books I have read, I highly recommend this book. Especially if you want to learn more about Katherine of Aragon. Of course you have to take into account that things they say may not be quite accurate but as Alison has said “I have kept closely to the historical record” and she really has!

Absolutely brilliant! I could go on and on about how wonderful this is but go and check out for yourselves!
