9780718177065: Queen's Gambit

If you love the BBC's The White Queen you'll love this.

Meet the woman who survived Henry VIII in Elizabeth Fremantle's first novel, Queen's Gambit...

My name is Katherine Parr.

I'm 31 years old and already twice widowed.

I'm in love with a man I can't have, and am about to wed a man no-one would want - for my husband-to-be is none other than Henry VIII, who has already beheaded two wives, cast aside two more, and watched one die in childbirth.

What will become of me once I'm wearing his ring and become Queen of England?

They say that the sharpest blades are sheathed in the softest pouches.

Only time will tell what I am really made of...

For fans of Hilary Mantel, Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir, Elizabeth Fremantle's first novel, Queen's Gambit, is a riveting account of the Tudor queen who married four men and outlived three of them - including Henry VIII.

Rich in atmosphere and period detail, and told through the eyes of Katherine and her young maid Dot, it tells the story of two very different women during a terrifying and turbulent time. If you loved Wolf Hall, The Other Boleyn Girl or the BBC drama series The Tudors, then Elizabeth Fremantle's Queen's Gambit is the book for you.

Recensione:

The Tudor court comes to life in this gripping story of Katherine Parr, where passion secrecy and betrayal power the suspense ( Woman & Home)

Rich and enticing ( Stylist)

Beautifully written and finely observed, this suspenseful tale of Henry the Eighth's last wife expertly conveys all the dangerous intensity and passion of the Tudor court ( Rachel Hore, author of A Place of Secrets and A Gathering Storm)

Electric ( Good Housekeeping)

With a painter's eye for detail, Fremantle brings the dazzling, dangerous Tudor court to life and sheds an intriguing new light on Katherine Parr, one of history's great survivors. An enthralling tale of power and passion, loyalty and betrayal ( Elizabeth Wilhide, author of Ashenden)

A major new voice in historical fiction and the answer to the question about what Hilary Mantel fans should read while waiting for the final part of her trilogy ( The Bookseller)

A sumptuous epic ( Metro)

Wildly entertaining... and one of the best historical novels I've read. It is Fremantle's first book. I hope it will not be her last. ( Huffington Post)
