Six Tudor Queens: Katharine Parr, The Sixth Wife (Hardback)Alison Weir (author)
- Sold out
The culmination of Weir’s sweeping Tudor saga focuses on the last of Henry VIII’s sextet of wives, Katharine Parr, and tells a compelling tale of religious suppression, unrequited love and regal duty.
A woman torn between love and duty.
Two husbands dead, a boy and a sick man. And now Katharine is free to make her own choice.
The ageing King's eye falls upon her. She cannot refuse him... or betray that she wanted another. She becomes the sixth wife - a queen and a friend. Henry loves and trusts her. But Katharine is hiding another secret in her heart, a deeply held faith that could see her burn...
Renowned historian Alison Weir, author of the Sunday Times bestselling Six Tudor Queens series, reveals a warm, clever woman of great fortitude who rose boldly to every turn her life took: Henry VIII's last wife - Katharine Parr, the queen who survived him.
