I’ve always had a fascination with Henry VIII and his six wives, and I’ve been interested in this series by Alison Weir, where she writes about one wife in each book. But the books are long, so I’ve never picked them up before. When I saw the first audiobook available on Hoopla, I knew I had to dive in and start listening!
The first book follows Henry’s first wife, Katherine of Aragon, from when she first arrives in England at age 16, to her first wedding with Arthur, and finishes with her tumultuous marriage to Henry. I knew a some of her life story, but through this book I learned a lot more and I enjoyed getting to know Katherine (even though she frustrated me with her decisions at times). If you like Philippa Gregory, or other historical fiction novels about real people, I would highly recommend starting this series!
