Narrator Rosalyn Landor beautifully portrays Katharine Parr, Henry VIII’s last wife from Alison Weir’s Katharine Parr, The Sixth Wife. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Sandi Henschel discuss Alison Weir’s historical fiction audiobook that Sandi calls superb listening. Katharine plans to marry Tom Seymour, but after Henry beheads his most recent wife for adultery and treason, Henry fancies Katharine. What choice does she have? She becomes queen in a kingdom plagued by religious turmoil, and court intrigue puts Katharine in danger for her reformist beliefs. Superb listening!
