Publisher's Summary

February 1542 - A young woman awaits her execution in the Tower of London, sent to death on the orders of her husband, Henry VIII.

Daughter of the nobility, cousin to a fallen Queen, Catherine Howard rose from the cluttered ranks of courtiers at the court of Henry VIII to become the King's fifth wife. But hers is a tale that starts long before the crown was placed on her head. A tale of tragedy and challenges, predators and prey; the story of a young girl growing up in a perilous time, facing dangers untold.

The fifth wife of Henry VIII would end her life on the block, like her cousin Anne Boleyn...but where did her story begin?

Contains mature themes.

Good historical faction

Telling the history of Henry VIII's reign through the eyes of the ill-fated teenage Queen Catherine Howard is an interesting concept. it includes episodes before she was born by recalling stories told to her by older relatives and so covers more than just Catherine's short span. By using one narrator this soliloquy can be a little one-dimensional, but it's a good story. Lots of facts, lots of interpretation, lots of artistic licence to fill in gaps.
