Book Review

The Last Wife of Henry VIII: A Novel The Last Wife of Henry VIII: A Novel by Carolly Erickson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars I loved this book. It gave me insight into Catherine Parr, whom very little historical fiction is written about. It discusssed a lot about the man King Henry had become and the damage the disease did to him. About Catherine it began when she was a very small child continuing until Henry died. It had a lot about her life before becoming queen and a lot afterwards. It was a fast and interesting read. I would highly recommend it. View all my reviews >>
