'This six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction' The Times
Alison Weir, historian and author of the Sunday Times-bestselling Six Tudor Queens series, recounts the story of Henry VIII's last wife - Katharine Parr, the queen who survived him.
Two husbands dead, a boy and a sick man. And now Katharine is in love for the first time in her life.
The ageing King's eye falls upon her. She cannot refuse him. She must never betray that she wanted another.
And now Katharine is the sixth wife - a queen and a nurse. The tragic parade of women who went before her haunt her dreams. She cherishes a secret faith that could see her burn. And yet the King loves and trusts her.
But her enemies are closing in...
Katharine Parr. The last of Henry's queens. Her story.
Alison Weir unveils the extraordinary life of a woman forced into a dangerous union and rising heroically to the challenge. But those Katharine trusts most are the ones she should fear.

This is my favourite of the series Alison's sensitively drawn novel will change everyone's preconceptions Weir demonstrates her deep knowledge of the period offering fascinating detail on all aspects of Tudor life. . .It is a profoundly moving story that lingers long after the last page is turned Katheryn emerges from the pages of this beautifully realised portrayal as beguiling, vivacious and, in the end, tragically naive . . .This novel will captivate you and break your heart. Utterly sublime
