Spend a compelling evening in the company of historian Alison Weir as she recounts the extraordinary story of a woman forced into a perilous situation and rising heroically to the challenge. Katharine Parr: The Sixth Wife is the final book in Alison's bestselling Six Tudor Queens series about the wives of Henry VIII.

Katharine is a delightful woman, a warm and kindly heroine – and yet she will be betrayed by those she loves and trusts most. Too late, the truth will dawn on her...

Two husbands dead; a life marred by sadness. And now Katharine is in love for the first time in her life. The eye of an ageing and dangerous king falls upon her. She cannot refuse him. She must stifle her feelings and never betray that she wanted another. And now she is the sixth wife. Her queenship is a holy mission yet, fearfully, she recalls the tragic parade of women who went before her. She cherishes the secret beliefs that could send her to the fire. And still the King loves and trusts her. Now her enemies are closing in. She must fight for her very life.

Katharine Parr – the last of Henry's queens...
