The marriage of Katharine of Aragon and King Henry VIII was a right royal match. England loved the young lovers, but hardly were they wed when powerful people in Henry's court were spinning webs of intrigue around the innocent royal pair. Spanish spies, the Pope's men, the Queen's seductive ladies-in-waiting, and especially the King's brilliant advisor, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, all were obsessed with one question: Would Queen Katharine be able to give Henry the healthy son he so desperately wanted? Everything depended on the answer, especially the destiny of Queen Katharine herself.In this second novel of the series, Jean Plaidy has brilliantly written the bittersweet true story of young King Henry and his dear Kate, who wanted only to please her beloved husband but seemed thwarted at every turn.More

It looms over her
Heart breaks for Catherine.
This is not a happy story and I kept wondering how things would have been different had she given birth to a living son. Catherine of Aragon is my favorite of Henry's wives so I enjoyed this book. Not spectacular, but good.
Anne did a very good job.
Catherine without a doubt.
