The Sixth Wife

The Sixth Wife summary ✓ 8 Suzannah Dunn ð 8 review free read Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ð Suzannah Dunn S drawn deeper into the web of politics ensnaring her oldest friend it gradually becomes clear that she has her own dark tale to tell For though Thomas might betray his wife for power Catherine might betray her for passion risking everything she has in a world where love is a luxury not even royalty can easily afford. This turned out to be a novel that just happens to use Katherine Parr Thomas Seymour and Catherine Duchess of Suffolk as major characters It concerns a romantic encounter which is purely fiction The places are correct the people are correct but the plot is not It is an interesting look at Thomas Seymour however It does not add anything to one s knowledge of history and it is a bit slow at timeseasy beach read nothing to write home about

The Sixth Wife summary ✓ 8 Suzannah Dunn ð 8 review free read Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ð Suzannah Dunn Han a year after the old king's death her heart is won by the dashing Thomas Seymour and their hasty union undoes a lifetime of prudent cautionAn unwilling witness to the ueen's late blossoming love Catherine Duchess of Suffolk harbors nagging suspicions of Kate's handsome and ambitious new husband But as Catherine i. The title of this book and the byline which reads She survived Henry VIII to be betrayed by love is very misleading Anyone myself included would have expected this book to be about Katherine Parr the Sixth Wife of Henry VIII Katherine had a supporting role to say the least The book is a first person narrative by her best friend Catherine Brandon widow of Charles Brandon the Duke of Suffolk I had forgiven the author for the misleading title as all aspects of the Tudor reign interest me However this book was awful The narrator Catherine Brandon is very unlikable and even the author admits to her ambivalence of her in the uestionanswer in the back of the book So why she chose to write her first person is beyond me Catherine came off as self righteous self absorbed selfish and cold So when you are writing of such a person in first first person it makes for a horrible read The author also prides herself for not using tudorspeak but calling Catherine Brandon Cathy and Edward Seymour Ed along with all the other written words she chose for this time period just came off as sounding ridiculous instead of original as the author wanted it to be I wanted to uit this book so many times but I also didn t want to be a uitter The only thing that kept me going was her brief references to Edward Seymour one of the most interesting men of the Tudor times

The Sixth Wife summary ✓ 8 Suzannah Dunn ð 8 review free read Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ð Suzannah Dunn A gripping novel of love passion betrayal and heartbreak in the unstable Tudor court following the death of King Henry VIIIClever level headed Katherine Parr has suffered through four years of marriage to the aging and irascible King Henry VIII and she has survived unlike the five wives who came before her But less t. This is the fourth novel about Katherine Parr that I ve tried to enjoy The other three I didn t even finish so I guess that could be considered something positive about this book It was an easy readUnfortunately I found the Epilogue to be far interesting than the book I wanted to learn about the life of Katherine Parr and I don t feel like I know any about her than before finishing this novel The story that Suzannah Dunn wrote could be about anyoneSPOILERS AHEADThe focus of the story is Katherine Parr s best friend Catherine Brandon s adulterous affair with Parr s husband Thomas Seymour Mind you this affair is completely fictionalized by the author and there were never rumors about the two at the time of Parr and Seymour s marriage Dunn states the relationship is of her own imagining What I don t understand is why the author didn t focus on the relationship between Elizabeth Tudor and Thomas Seymour I think that would have made sense given that their relationship was supposed to have really happenedEND SPOILERSI also didn t care for the contemporary narration and dialog It really took some getting used to It felt completely disconnected from the history of the story and I had a difficult time reconciling the two things in my mind I also didn t care for the characterizations of these historical figures especially Catherine Brandon I didn t find her actions believableI have also tried to read the following books about Katherine Parr The Ivy Crown by Mary Luke The King s Pleasure by Norah Lofts The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erickson All without success There seems to be two extremes they are either very very dry or simple and melodramatic If anyone can recommend a novel about Katherine Parr that doesn t fall into either category I d appreciate it Plaidy counts as very very dry in my book
