The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: Learning about the early life of Katherine of Aragon was so fascinating. It seems that she is always featured in books, but only as the wife that Henry is trying to get rid of so he can marry Anne Boleyn. It was nice to learn about Katherine before that time.

How I Felt: I was so intrigued by a story I had not known before. I had no idea who Katherine’s parent were, what kind of family she came from, etc. I felt the story brought to life this woman and her history.

To Read Or Not To Read: If you like historical fiction this is a great one for you. Readers interested in Henry the VIII will find this book quite enjoyable!

What’s This Book About Anyway?

This story starts with Katherine of Aragon, engaged at the age of 4 to the Prince of Wales, Arthur. She is raised to be the Queen she will one day become. When she finally sails for England, she is introduced to a father-in-law she doesn’t like and a husband who isn’t much better. She slowly starts to become comfortable in her new life, but then Arthur dies. She was raised to be a Queen and determines to set her sights on the next King in line.
