Meticulous research and a fast paced plot brings the court of Henry VIII, at the time of his battle with the Pope over his divorce from Catherine of Aragon, vividly and compellingly to life through the eyes of Lady in Waiting, Honor Larke. This is the first in a four part series that will be perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory.

Synopsis

The Queen's Lady by Barbara Kyle

London 1527. Marry or serve: for Honor Larke, the choice is clear. Unwilling to perish of boredom as an obedient wife, she leaves the home of her ward to attend Her Majesty Queen Catherine of Aragon. Angered by the humiliation heaped upon her mistress as Henry VIII cavorts with Anne Boleyn and presses Rome for a divorce, Honor volunteers to carry letters to the Queen's allies abroad. It's a risky game, and swept into a tide of intrigue and danger that stretches across Europe, The Queen's Lady is about learn everything about passion, pride, greed - and the capricious nature of the King.
