Why would a woman marry a serial killer? Because she cannot refuse... Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives - King Henry VIII - commands her to marry him. Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn's trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent. But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry's dangerous gaze turns on her.The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy - the punishment is death by fire and the king's name is on the warrant... From an author who has described all of Henry's queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power and education at the court of a medieval killer.… (més)

The Taming of the Queen is a tiresome book. Tiresome in that the dialogue goes on and on. Clearly a lot of research went into the history of King Henry VIII's wife, Catherine Parr. According to this book Catherine escaped her own beheading, an abusive husband (King Henry VIII) and was considerably ahead of her time by publishing an English translation of the Bible. Apparently, Catherine Parr was very much in favor of women having their own rights an attitude that really did not take off until the 20th Century. Unfortunately only three stars were awarded here as the story, the dialogue was just too long. ( )

I liked this book but it definitely was not one of my favorites. A bit too much religion for me although I respect that was the history then. Still, all in all, well written in typical Philippa Gregory style. ( )

Boring nice portrayal of Henry VIII as a disgusting pig. ( )

hy would a woman marry a serial killer?

Because she cannot refuse...

Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives – King Henry VIII – commands her to marry him.

Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn's trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as regent.

But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and a published author, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry's dangerous gaze turns on her.The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy - the punishment is death by fire and the king's name is on the warrant...

From an author who has described all of Henry's queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power and education at the court of a medieval killer ( )

Started off interesting if only because nobody knows (or cares) much about the last wife who survived. Ended weakly after a lot of romantic teasing. ( )
