What we think of this book & ideas for gifting

Katherine Parr was the final wife of the tyrannical and spouse-slaying King Henry VIII, and the only one of his six wives to survive beheading or escape divorce. Tudor England comes to life in this rich drama told through the eyes of clever Katherine, her stepdaughter Margaret and her maid, Dot, and will be perfect for anyone who loved the BBC’s The White Queen and The Tudors.
