5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Must read for lovers of historical fiction!, 5 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Confessions of Catherine de Medici (Paperback)
Having read C W Gortner's Last Queen, I knew I had to buy this book. It tells the story of Catherine De Medici, the queen consort of Henri II of France.
Gortner is an amazing author. He really can tell a story in a way that you feel a part of the book. I could not put this down and I read the whole thing, cover to cover in a day.
The author shows a different side to Catherine, not the usual scheming, devious woman that we know. He portrays her much more humanely. She is a real person, she has feelings, she gets upset, she becomes happy etc. I've only ever read books where Catherine is the usual bad queen. In this, she truly is a likeable person.
A must read for lovers of historical fiction. This book is up there with Sharon Penman, Margaret George and Anya Seton!
BUY IT! You'll love it :)
