Katherine
By

Rating
'A great adventure, powerfully told' (Philippa Gregory) A sumptuous tale of passion and danger in the medieval court, Anya Seton's Katherine is an all-time classic. Katherine comes to the court of Edward III at the age of fifteen. The naive convent-educated orphan of a penniless knight is dazzled by the jousts and the entertainments of court. Nevertheless, Katherine is beautiful, and she turns the head of the King's favourite son, John of Gaunt. But he is married, and she is soon to be betrothed. A few years later their paths cross again and this time their passion for each other cannot be denied or suppressed. Katherine becomes the prince's mistress, and discovers an extraordinary world of power, pleasure and passion.

Reviews

'Perhaps the greatest gifts Anya Seton brings to her historical novels are the zest of her narrative, the life she breathes into the most insignificant characters, and the atmosphere of the era she evokes around them' -- Books and Bookmen 'Brilliant historical construction' -- Evening News 'Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious. Katherine emerges a glowing, vital figure' -- Daily Telegraph 'A great adventure, powerfully told' -- Philippa Gregory 'Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale' -- Women's Journal 'wonderful historical novels' -- Alison Weir
