         From the luxuries of court to the last gory years of the outsize King Henry when heads rolled and England trembled, Catherine bestrode her destiny and survived to marry her true love. She was the least known of Henry VIII’s six wives, but was the cleverest of them all.
        Alluring, witty and resourceful, she attracted the king’s lust and, though in love with the handsome Thomas Seymour, was thrown into the snakepit of the royal court. While victims of the king’s wrath suffered torture and execution, Catherine withstood the onslaught, even when Henry sought to replace her with a seventh wife. She survived her royal husband, and found happiness with Seymour—but it was shadowed by rivalry with the young Princess Elizabeth, whose affection Seymour coveted. Catherine won the contest, but at great cost.

Praise for The Last Wife of Henry VIII

“Erickson is an acclaimed biographer, and Maggi-Meg Reed superbly reads the account as Marie Antoinette might have read it to her grandchildren, had she survived. Between the author and the performer, the listener is drawn into the queen’s innermost thoughts so that we feel her joys, her fears, and her sufferings while she struggles to maintain her regal disposition.”
AudioFile on The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette

“I read The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette in two days, and when I finished it, I reread the final pages, as hungry for more as a child scraping the last crumbs of chocolate cake off her plate with her fingers.... This may be pure fiction, but it hardly matters. As the chronicle of one woman’s life and loves, The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette rings true.”
Judith Warner, The New York Times
