    (281)

    Set in the vibrant 14th century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the classic romance Katherine features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets - Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II - who ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king's son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine.

    Patricia says: "Wonderful the 2nd time around, forty years later!"
    "Researched Historic Epic"

    A true tale told with life and knowledge.


    What did you like best about this story?

    well researched of a tumultous time in history


    Which character – as performed by Wanda McCaddon – was your favorite?

    McCaddon's nuanced reading brought each of the many complex characters to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Real lives of influence in influential times than shaped history and good love story to boot


    Any additional comments?

    I visited Katherine's grave in Lincoln and atop the marble effigy was the note, "This is the Katherine of Anya Seton's book Katherine." Seton researched the lives and times so well if you are studying British History this book will give you a wonderful context for understanding the tones and textures of Chaucer's England. (Chaucer was the brother in law of Katherine by the bye.)
