The Constant Princess
by Philippa Gregory
If you require an escape from reality into history, recreated by a skillful author, then this is the book for you. A splendid and sumptuous historical novel, from the bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl, The Constant Princess tells the story of the early life of Katherine of Aragon. Viewed by historians as the barren wife of a notorious King, her life prior to Henry is an interesting subject. Impeccably researched and a great read. In paperback at 11 euros.
