The first of Henry VIII's queens.
A Spanish princess. Raised to be modest, obedient and devout. Destined to be an English Queen.
Six weeks from home across treacherous seas, everything is different: the language, the food, the weather. And for her there is no comfort in any of it. At sixteen-years-old, Catalina is alone among strangers.
She misses her mother. She mourns her lost brother. She cannot trust even those assigned to her protection.
Katherine of Aragon.
History tells us how she died. This captivating novel shows us how she lived.
