Praise for Katheryn Howard, The Scandalous Queen

“Katheryn Howard . . . not only deceived the king about her previous lovers but dallied with another man during their marriage. . . . [Alison Weir] plunges readers into the viewpoint of a fun-loving, naïve young woman whose unorthodox upbringing and poor choices precipitated her downfall.”Booklist

“Weir brings thorough research and spirited storytelling to her portrayal of Katheryn Howard. . . . A vivid re-creation of a Tudor tragedy.”Kirkus Reviews

“Absolutely stunning . . . I was completely gripped from the first page to the last. Katheryn emerges from the pages of this beautifully realized portrayal as beguiling, vivacious, and, in the end, tragically naïve. Her story still resonates today, and Alison Weir tells it with characteristic verve and stunning period detail.”—Tracy Borman, author of The Private Lives of the Tudors

“A wonderful book . . . Katheryn Howard is, for me, the most tragic of Henry VIII’s wives, and in her latest novel, Alison Weir covers her life from its early beginnings of impoverished nobility, her family wholly dependent on royal patronage, to her short period as queen, a position she had been pushed into, used as a pawn by her power-hungry family, though she lacked the intellect or sophistication to negotiate its pitfalls. It is a profoundly moving story that lingers long after the last page is turned.”—Elizabeth Fremantle, author of Queen’s Gambit
