Staff Reviews


The Queen's Gambit by Elizabeth Fremantle is an excellent companion read to Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall series. Written in the voice of Katherine Parr this novel is well constructed and convincing in tone - (of a 16thc aristocratic, educated woman). More than that, Katherine (who is a fascinating woman) is a well researched, deftly drawn character as are the other historic personages in the story. The Queen's Gambit is about the complexity of politics and marriage, we won't even speak of love in the terrifying last years of Henry the Eighth. — Maeve Noonan

Description


This brilliant historical fiction debut takes readers into the heart of the Tudor court and the life of the charismatic Katherine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth and last wife. Widowed for the second time at 31, Katherine Parr finds she has fallen deeply for a dashing courtier, but receives attention from the ailing, egotistical, and dangerously powerful monarch Henry VIII.
