Two husbands dead: a life marred by sadness. And now Katharine is in love for the first time in her life. The eye of an aging and dangerous king falls upon her. She cannot refuse him. She must stifle her feelings and never betray that she wanted another.

She is the sixth wife.

Her queenship is a holy mission yet fearfully she recalls the tragic parade of the women that went before her.

Alison Weir recounts the extraordinary story of a woman forced into a perilous situation and rising heroically to the challenge.

Tickets : £12 / £10
