Alison Weir Press Reviews

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 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 Alison's sensitively drawn novel will change everyone's preconceptions This is my favourite of the series Alison Weir is an expert at weaving together historical detail, political powerplay and the feelings of a naive woman. - Woman & Home
