`Linda Porter has done a marvellous job in bringing Katherine Parr to life. In so doing, she evokes the whole terrifying and exciting world of the Tudor courts, packed with intrigue and danger' A.N. Wilson, Reader's Digest

In this, the first full-scale biography of Katherine Parr, Linda Porter illuminates the life of the queen history has largely forgotten - or at least misremembered. Twice widowed before her marriage to the king, she was not as well versed in the ways of monarchs and her fervent political and religious views made waves in the treacherous waters of the Tudor court. The queen who 'survived' did so only by the skin of her teeth. And though the story of her life has been curiously neglected, she left an enduring impression on English history.

'Colourful and well paced . . . Katherine's was indeed a remarkable life' Matthew Dennison, Mail on Sunday

`[A] nuanced picture of family allegiances and intellectual background' Jenny Uglow, Financial Times
