Publisher's Summary

In the eyes of the world, Katharine of Aragon was a precious object to be disposed of for the glory of Spain. Her parents, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand, sent her to England to become the bride of Arthur, Prince of Wales. But soon her frail husband was dead, and a fateful question loomed: was the marriage consummated, or was the young widow still a virgin?On that delicate point hinged Katharine's - and England's - future. Meanwhile, waiting in the wings was her willful, handsome brother-in-law, bold Prince Henry, who alone had the power to restore Katharine's lost position.

Long and Oriental

I love historical figures which is the only reason I listened to this story all the way through. It was long winded, very wordy and the the narrator clipped each word so much that I thought the characters were oriental and not Spanish...especially Katharine...at times I laughed out loud listening to her accent it sounded so unbelievable. I wouldn't listen to this again...and the narrator needs to not try foreign accents...she is much better with just English.

Not bad

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you enjoy learning about Katherine of Aragon it could be enjoyable, but so many of these books are similar and get tiring to listen to.


Would you be willing to try another book from Jean Plaidy? Why or why not?

Maybe, it seemed a little aged.


Was Katharine, the Virgin Widow worth the listening time?

I guess so, I probably wouldn't listen to it again though, it wasn't that good. The plot was just ok, not a lot of new information about her life I didn't already know.
