    1. I would like to thank netgalley and endeavour press for the chance to read this book. I have read another of Peter's book and enjoyed it, but the same cannot be said for this book. It suffers from some of the some of the same problems as the other book (poor grammar and such), but more extreme. The writhing is so hard to read that I just gave up trying to read it, basic grammar rules such as a new line for a different person speaking have not been observed. In addition I find the main character [...]



    2. Yes, yes, I know what ‘wanton’ means, and am dutifully outraged over the double standard, but my mind keeps thinking of ‘wonton,’ and I've started imagining Katheryn showing up ay Richmond Palace with take out and bribing her way back into Henry’s good graces with some fried rice and dumplings. d now I want Chinese food.OK, actual review:The story was dragged down by the 1st person POV of a fictional lady in waiting to Katheryn Howard. It was odd her character was made up considering t [...]


    3. I love a good medieval story and there has been very little written of Katherine Howard and of how she was seduced into the life of royalty and ultimately destroyed by her flirtatious nature. This story follows the life of Katherine, from her childhood with her Grandmother, to her demise at the court of Henry VIII. Katherine allowed herself to be manipulated by those who knew of her past as she feared losing the one thing that she wanted more than anything else, to be Queen of England.Very well [...]


    4. I received this as an ARC from NetGalley. This was a fairly good representation of the fifth queen of Henry VIII, Katheryn Howard. She was a fickle young girl who rose to the highest place a woman could reach at the time. I had a tough time at the beginning understanding who was telling the story. At times it seemed like the story was being told from an omniscient point of view and then it would switch to a first person story. It did cover the major moments of Katheryn's life and what she would [...]


    5. Peters tells the story of Kitty Howard’s brief life, and even briefer queenship, through her servant the fictional character Geraldine Lyle. Very few stories have been written about her, which makes this one even more of a gift. During the course of this story we also learn about three of Henry VIII’s four wives who preceded her: Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, and Anne of Cleves. The book is a quick, light read and gets better as the story unfolds. Readers who are new to the subject matter will [...]


    6. I'm certainly a fan of reading about the wives of Henry VIIIth. Why do they want to be one more in the line and how do they get their downfall. Women are used as a 'thing' and I found that the book pictured this quite well. We also follow Katheryn from a very young age and i was very surprised to see how young she was sometimes. I liked reading this book, which is quick-paced and beautifully written.
