A good book and well worth a read,
This review is from: The Confession of Katherine Howard (Paperback)
For some reason, there is something that I don't like about Susanna Dunn's writing, which I just can't put my finger on. I think it's that she writes about these inspiring women, but not from their viewpoints and I spend most of the novel desperate to get inside their heads and out of these fictional characters. But, I'll give her that, it's a good spin and a twist on most fictional novels about the Tudor period which have sadly been done to death, almost.
However, I LOVED her presentation of Katherine Howard. Completely different from Phillipa Gregory's charming and silly sweet Katherine Howard, but no less of a character. She wrote her as a mature young woman, still too young to be queen, but far from the annoying Katherine Howard that haunts Emily Purdy's: - 'The Tudor Wife.'
So guys, it's well worth a read. If you've read what I've just written and what I've told you, you won't be disappointed. I promise.
