內容簡介

紐約時報最佳暢銷書作者菲莉帕.葛列格裡最新宮廷史小說

一段不為人知的宮廷秘辛,亨利八世第六任妻子─凱薩琳•帕爾的傳奇人生
「誰還記得凱薩琳•帕爾這號人物?身為亨利八世第六任妻子,她聰明且獨立,而且活得比她的丈夫更精彩,她是作者所有宮廷小說中最讓人難忘的女性角色。」─《People Magazine》

凱薩琳•帕爾是一位36歲的寡婦,即使她有個秘密戀人,但仍被迫嫁給年老且殺死兩任妻子的國王亨利八世。凱薩琳心裡非常清楚,嫁進皇宮想盡辦法保下頂上人頭才是真正的生存之道,因為上一任年輕的皇后只當了16個月就被處死。由於凱薩琳獨立且聰明自主,相當受到亨利八世喜愛,與國王的子女們關係良好,並在宮內核心組織積極學習,更被國王任命為攝政。然而這樣的表現卻沒有完全保障凱薩琳的安全。她除了宗教改革的領導者及成為英國第一個出書的女性,凱薩琳積極的嶄露出她獨立的性格,也因為宗教改革使她成為教廷眼中的異端份子,連亨利八世都開始對她感到不信任,甚至以處以火刑來威脅她的生命。透過菲莉帕.葛列格最擅長的歷史小說描述,凱薩琳不只是亨利八世的最後一任妻子,她也是一位充滿熱情及野心的傳奇女性。


By the #1 New York Times bestselling author behind the Starz original series The White Queen, a riveting new Tudor tale featuring King Henry VIII’s sixth wife Kateryn Parr, the first English queen to publish under her own name.

Why would a woman marry a serial killer?

Because she cannot refuse…

Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives—King Henry VIII—commands her to marry him.

Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn’s trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent.

But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry’s dangerous gaze turns on her. The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy—the punishment is death by fire and the king’s name is on the warrant…

From an author who has described all of Henry’s queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power, and education at the court of a medieval killer. - See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/The-Taming-of-the-Queen/Philippa-Gregory/9781476758794#sthash.mgOxbkq6.dpuf
