What was one of the most memorable moments of Catherine de Valois?

to me it was all memorable. you can tell this author did her research before writing this book.


What about Richard Mann’s performance did you like?

i loved the personality in his voice as well as the different characters


Any additional comments?

I loved this book. You can tell this author did her research and loves history. This story starts off with Margaret Beaufort and opens with her marrying Edmund Tudor. this is on Catherine de Valois' life and i find it utterly facinating. The voive narator for this book was the perfect match as well. I loved his voice and the changes per character.
