Description - The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erickson
From the bestselling and critically acclaimed author of "The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette "comes a powerful new novel about Catherine Parr, "The Last Wife of Henry VIII." The least known of Henry VIII's six wives was the cleverest of them all. Alluring, witty, and resourceful, she attracted the king's lust and, though much in love with the handsome Thomas Seymour, was thrown into the intrigue-filled snakepit of the royal court. While victims of the king's wrath suffered torture and execution, Catherine withstood the onslaught, even when Henry sought to replace her with wife number seven. She survived her royal husband, and found happiness with Seymour---but it was shadowed by rivalry with the young Princess Elizabeth, whose affection Seymour coveted. Catherine won the contest, but at great cost.
