Six Tudor Queens by Alison Weir . Review

This is the story about Katherine of Aragon who became queen of England . Katherine was married to Henry VIII and reading the story about their notorious marriage was impossible to put down. 
Katherine was a very devout and dignified young woman when she moved from her home of Spain to England where she was destined to many dark moments in her life . You have to admire her strength , losing so many children and her husbands behaviour towards her would be enough to destroy most other  women. Her belief in her faith seemed to be the one thing she could rely on and turn to when she was shaken and unsure of what life had in store for her . 
I thought about how daunting it must have been for her and other future queens at that time, as very young girls , and women,  to leave their homes and families and go and get married and perhaps not see their family again  . They were all terribly brave. I recommend this wonderful book for all fans of history .
