Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This masterful performance of historical fiction centers on Katharine Howard — clever, beautiful, and outspoken — who catches the jaded eye of Henry VIII and becomes his fifth Queen. Corruption and fear pervade the King's court, and the dimly lit corridors vibrate with the intrigues of unscrupulous courtiers hungry for power. Soon Katharine is locked in a vicious battle with Thomas Cromwell, the Lord Privy Seal, as she fights for political and religious change.<P>Ford saw the past as an integral part of the present experience and understanding, and his sharply etched vision of the court of Henry VIII — first published in 1908 — echoes aspects of Edwardian England as it explores the pervading influence of power, lies, fear, and anxiety on people's lives.

About the Author

Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) began his career writing fairy tales before collaborating with Joseph Conrad on several novels. After publishing successful solo works, he established the Transatlantic Review and divided his time between France and America.

A. S. Byatt, novelist, short-story writer, and critic, is the author of many books, including Possession, winner of the Man Booker Prize.
