Rarely are there great books of this Queen in comparison to her successor. Highly recomend this.

I enjoyed this retelling of Katherine of Aragon. It is refreshing to read the story through one of her ladies-in-waiting. This book flows nicely.

I was expecting another book about Henry VIII but then I started reading it. It was a fantastic historical fiction with a really touching romance with it. Anyone who likes historical fiction or romance will not be able to put it down.
