|Editorial Review||"Rich, perceptive, nuanced and creative, this first full-scale biography gives one of Britain's best but least-known queens her due."--"Publishers Weekly "(starred review)"Missing 'The Tudors' TV show? The story continues in this biography of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Katherine Parr."--"New York Post""Linda Porter has done a marvellous job . . . she evokes the whole terrifying and exciting world of the Tudor courts, packed with intrigue and danger."--A.N. Wilson"A well-documented, compelling story filled with the intrigue and drama one has come to expect of the time period. . . . This is the stuff of a cable miniseries, but Porter tempers the narrative with Katherine's accomplishments, creating a balanced, satisfying read."--"The Post and Courier", Charleston, SCUK Praise for "Katherine the Queen" "Porter's vividly written biography confirms her belief that Katherine was an influential woman. As stepmother she shaped Elizabeth I, one of England's most successful monarchs. More importantly, Porter presents a portrait of an attractive woman more than capable of navigating the treacherous waters of life at the duplicitous Tudor court."--Peter Burton, "Daily Express""Porter offers a nuanced picture of family allegiances and intellectual background."--"Financial Times""Porter's account of Katherine's life is colourful and well-paced . . . those who enjoy Tudor history will agree with Porter's assessment that Katherine's was indeed a remarkable life."--Matthew Dennison, "Mail on Sunday""Porter provides a reliable synthesis of the best historical research on Katherine's life and times, while periodically going beyond it to offer original contributions."--Peter Marshall, "The Literary Review""Porter's lively and detailed account gives us a reinvigorated image of Katherine."--"Lancashire Evening Post"|
