Katheryn Howard, Henry the Eighth's fifth wife, has had few books written about her-and the ones I have read either portray her as a reckless, promiscuous girl-or as the helpless victim of a tyrant. Ms Peters portrays her simply as a pretty, vivacious, sensual but basically naive young woman who is thrilled to become a queen, but who cannot handle the life this requires of her. Katheryn grows up as a "poor relation" in the rather negligent home of her grandmother. She lives in a dormitory of young women, and the easy atmosphere combined with a lack of supervision leads young Katheryn into love affairs she is really not ready for. When she catches the king's interest, she and her family hide her past- and her love for her cousin, Tom Culpepper- so that she can become queen: which slowly and relentlessly leads to tragedy. This book is easy enough for average readers, yet intricate enough in plot and substance for more advanced Tudor followers. The plot and dialogue are quick, descriptive, and sparkling. Don't miss this vintage Tudor classic.
Since I have read a lot of books about the Tudor period nothing in this book surprised me. The main character is a fairly well know historical figure and when you're dealing with true can't exactly change it. Still the book was very well written and held my attention though I knew how it would end. The author made Catherine Howard come alive and made you care about her even though she was childish and rather foolish. To anyone who loves or wants to learn more about history I would recommend this book.
Excellent bout King Henry' s second wife to become beheaded. The description is marvelous allowing the reader to become part of history. The descriptions were accurate and full of descriptive detail. If this time period is interesting to you it is definitely your cup of English tea.
This book was well written. It moved through the historical timeline very quickly. We do not get to really know the queen as a person, outside of her being fairly spoiled and naive.
Good book!
A pleasant, short, personal story of very interesting times. Gives a real feel for the historic events from the standpoint of of an intimate observer.
Peters tells the story of Kitty Howard’s brief life, and even briefer queenship, through her servant the fictional character Geraldine Lyle. Very few stories have been written about her, which makes this one even more of a gift. During the course of this story we also learn about three of Henry VIII’s four wives who preceded her: Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, and Anne of Cleves. The book is a quick, light read and gets better as the story unfolds. Readers who are new to the subject matter will likely enjoy it best. Peters’ fluid prose is always a joy to read.
This was a fairly good representation of the fifth queen of Henry VIII, Katheryn Howard. She was a fickle young girl who rose to the highest place a woman could reach at the time. I had a tough time at the beginning understanding who was telling the story. At times it seemed like the story was being told from an omniscient point of view and then it would switch to a first person story. It did cover the major moments of Katheryn's life and what she would have done and dealt with. All in all it was a good story and flowed fairly well once it was past the first few chapters. It would be good for beginner readers of Tudor England and Henry's queens.
