Waterstones Says

The first instalment of the Tudor Rose series from the author of the hugely popular Six Tudor Queens books, Elizabeth of York, the Last White Rose focuses on the tumultuous life of Henry VII's bride.

Alison Weir, Sunday Times-bestselling author of the Six Tudor Queens series, returns with a captivating new trio of novels spanning three generations of history's most iconic family, the Tudors.

Mother. Survivor. Queen.

The spellbinding story of Elizabeth of York, the first Tudor queen.

An English princess, born into a war between two families.

Eldest daughter of the royal House of York, Elizabeth dreams of a crown to call her own. But when her beloved father, King Edward, dies suddenly, her destiny is rewritten.

Her family's enemies close in. Two young princes are murdered in the Tower. Then her uncle seizes power - and vows to make Elizabeth his queen.

But another claimant seeks the throne, the upstart son of the rival royal House of Lancaster. Marriage to this Henry Tudor would unite the white rose of York and the red of Lancaster - and change everything.

A great new age awaits. Now Elizabeth must choose her allies - and husband - wisely, and fight for her right to rule.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Alison Weir:

'Katheryn emerges from the pages of this beautifully realised portrayal as beguiling, vivacious and, in the end, tragically naive . . .This novel will captivate you and break your heart. Utterly sublime. For the first time I felt as though, thanks to Alison's skilful writing and storytelling, I came to "know" Katharine. The book is utterly exceptional and beautifully crafted, with a keen eye for detail - solid gold for Tudor history lovers' - Nicola Tallis

'This brilliant series has brought Henry VIII's six wives to life as never before, and with Katharine Parr Alison Weir has saved the best until last. With stunning period detail and compelling drama throughout, Katharine emerges as a woman far ahead of her time: fiercely intelligent, courageous, passionate and inspiring, charting a course through the deadly waters of the Tudor court. This novel will enthrall and inspire, just as much as it will break your heart.' - Tracy Borman

'Weir demonstrates her deep knowledge of the period offering fascinating detail on all aspects of Tudor life. . .It is a profoundly moving story that lingers long after the last page is turned. Alison's sensitively drawn novel will change everyone's preconceptions. This is a detailed and convincing portrait of an extraordinary life. Taken as a whole, this series is a serious achievement' - The Times

'This masterly novel seamlessly blends history into the story's fabric. A superb read and a remarkable end to a brilliant series' - Historical Novel Society

'This is my favourite of the series. An absorbing and fascinating read, meticulously researched, as is always the case with Alison's work, and she really made Katherine live for me' - Sarah Rayne

'Katharine Parr deserves better than to be known just as Henry VIII's sixth wife - the one who survived. And there's no-one better placed than Alison Weir to restore her to her rightful place. Alison gives full weight to Parr the writer and reformer - the first woman in England to publish under her own name! - but she also explores the loving, passionate Katharine who was so much more than just a nurse to the ageing Henry. The 'Six Tudor Queens' series has been something of a ground-breaker in showing the light historical fiction can shed on historical fact. It's wonderful to see it go out on such a high note' - Sarah Gristwood

'Alison Weir's Katharine Parr The Sixth Wife is a tour de force. Known to all school children as "survived" Katharine Parr is shown to be the essence of goodness and a heartwarming, brave soul living in ruthless times. If you think you know everything about Henry VIII's last queen, you're in for a wonderful treat-you don't!' - Susan Ronald
