Queen's Gambit - Elizabeth Fremantle
I love Tudor-set stories, and Queen’s Gambit stars a queen who doesn’t receive as much attention as the previous wives of Henry V. Katherine Parr led a short but fascinating life – as the object of affection of two men (one the most powerful in England), Katherine fought her natural instincts toward love and deferred to duty. Queen’s Gambit flows quickly in a fictional retelling of Henry V’s final marriage, concentrating mainly on the Parr household – Katherine’s stepdaughter and the people in her employ. A great addition to the bookshelf of anybody who enjoys Tudor fact and fiction.
