Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen

Event Information

2pm

Fri 30 Jul

The latest novel in the highly acclaimed Six Tudor Queens series by historian and Sunday Times bestselling author, Alison Weir.

At just nineteen, Katheryn Howard is quick to trust and fall in love. She comes to court where she sings, dances and captures the heart of the King. Henry declares she is his rose without a thorn, but Katheryn has a past of which he knows nothing and those who know her secrets are waiting in the shadows, whispering words of love and blackmail.

Alison Weir draws on extensive research to recount one of the most tragic tales in English history – that of a lively, sweet but neglected girl, used by powerful men for their own gain. History tells us she died too soon but this mesmerising novel brings her to life.

“With characteristic verve and stunning period detail this novel will captivate you and break your heart. Utterly sublime” Tracy Borman
