Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Depends on the Reader... This book was not as good, I feel, as some of Jean Plaidys other books. The character of Katherine Parr is enjoyable to follow at first, but one gets sick of her constant good-girl aura, and her constant reminders to herself and others that she must be cautious. She has been reading forbidden books, forbidden by her very husband, the King. Lutheranism is of great interest to her, but she warns all to practice it quietly, for she does not want the axe to fall upon her head if the King discovers anything. Her love for a younger man, Thomas Seymour, and her constant worrying for him, and for herself gets a little tedious. But, Plaidys impeccable writing helps to make everything more interesting. I found that once I got to the last quarter of the book things were much, much better. The first parts were good as well, but it took a while for me to get into it. This book is good overall, but it really depends on the readers interest in the religious politics at that time in Tudor history, and the readers patience as well. You have to hold on when you hit a dull chapter or so, because in the end it will be worth it.
