Praise

Praise for The Last White Rose

“Weir tells the story through Elizabeth’s eyes, narrating it in the first person. As with all her books, it is superbly readable and engaging. I doubt we will ever tire of the Tudors, not while we have novelists like Weir to bring them to life.”Historical Novels Society

“Weir provides a realistic feel for the worry Elizabeth’s family experiences as their fortunes shift, especially after Richard III usurps the throne following King Edward’s death, and her brothers disappear while in his custody. The story gives a coherent, convincing picture of the treacherous political climate and its many players and reveals why Elizabeth plots to marry Henry Tudor. . . . . Weir’s thorough approach to her subject is impressive, as is the sumptuously recreated atmosphere of late-medieval royal life.”Booklist



Praise for Katharine Parr, The Sixth Wife

“Like its predecessors, this is a detailed and convincing portrait of an extraordinary life. Taken as a whole, this series is a serious achievement.”The Times

“Weir delivers engaging historical characters, filling the white spaces of their lives with believable interests, convincing motivation, and realistic daily routines. . . . The conversations are sparkling, gripping and word-perfect. . . . This masterly novel seamlessly blends history into the story’s fabric. A superb read and a remarkable end to a brilliant series.”Historical Novel Society

“Engaging and deeply researched . . . [Alison] Weir brings her expertise of the Tudor era to bear with rich detail and historical perspective on politics and religion, and the many intelligent conversations between Katharine and Henry VIII add to the charm. With a mercurial, captivating king as hook, Weir serves up a sharp and lucid blend of grim fact and stylish fiction.”Publishers Weekly

“A solid choice for Tudor enthusiasts looking for a well-researched, entertaining novel.”Library Journal

“With Katharine Parr, The Sixth Wife . . . Weir cements her well-deserved renown as a novelist and historian who elevates both genres far beyond expectation. . . . . Perhaps most poignant and memorable is Weir’s creative entry into the depths of a Tudor queen’s heart and mind. Katharine’s personality seems no mere fantasy, but an honest and empathic embrace of feminine power and vulnerability that is deeply relatable for women of every historical era.”Bookreporter

“This brilliant series has brought Henry VIII’s six wives to life as never before. This novel will enthrall and inspire, just as much as it will break your heart.”—Tracy Borman, author of The Private Lives of the Tudors
