The Cross and the Crown Series – Women in Tudor England

17 Jul

Sarah Kennedy’s series featuring Catherine Haven in the time of King Henry takes the reader into a richly detailed and creatively imagined world, much like The Other Bolyen Girl and Wolf Hall do. Once there, you are swept up in the march of history. The third book, The King’s Sisters, finds Catherine in the household of Henry’s ex-wife, Anne of Cleves. The overwhelming sense of apprehension and danger that people lived under was palpable.The lives of women in this time period are richly fleshed out. I haven’t read the first two books, and while each book is described as being stand-alone, I found myself wishing I had read the prior ones first – so now I’ll backtrack! Great writing, interesting POV into this much described historical period.
