Alison Weir in conversation... Katharine Parr: The Sixth Wife

Thursday 21st October 2021

Winchester Discovery Centre 

Join us for a conversational Meet the Authors special with Alison Weir in conversation with interviewer Rebecca Fletcher, discussing new book release 'Katharine Parr: The Sixth Wife'.

Two husbands dead, a boy and a sick man. And now Katharine is in love for the first time in her life. The ageing King’s eye falls upon her. She cannot refuse him. She must stifle her feelings and never betray that she wanted another.
And now she is the sixth wife – a wife and a nurse. Fearfully she dreams of the tragic parade of women who went before her. She cherishes the secret beliefs that could send her to the fire. And yet the King loves and trusts her.
Now her enemies are closing in. She must fight for her very life.
 
KATHARINE PARR – the last of Henry’s queens.
Alison Weir recounts the extraordinary story of a woman forced into a dangerous situation and rising heroically to the challenge. Katharine is a delightful character, a warm and kindly heroine – and yet she will be betrayed by those she loves and trusts most. Too late, the truth will dawn on her.
