Katherine the Duchess by Tony Riches

My first book review to begin 2020 is a great read!

Katherine Willoughby’s unlikely marriage to Charles Brandon her guardian,  makes her a baroness and leads to her walking close on the heels of all of Henry VIII’s wives ~ and between wives, even the King himself.  She manages to remain in favour ~ just, leading to a hasty escape to the continent.

Katherine finds happiness with her older husband, but much sadness too, as she suffers the loss of many close to her ~ it is a real roller coaster of emotions.

‘Katherine the Duchess’ is  a novel which gripped me from the start and I felt great empathy for this strong but extremely wise lady who trod a silken threaded path through life ~ joy ~ fortune ~ but great danger. Highly Recommended.
