Review: Patience Princess Catherine


Catherine of Aragon may have been the princess of Spain, but she did not have an easy life. Or death, rumor is she was poisoned. We all know that she was betrayed by Henry VIII, but what brought on to this heartwrenching event in their marriage? Were Henry and Catherine ever in love? Well, that's where this book comes in. 

A Love Triangle

Arthur, Catherine & Henry

It travels from the love triangle from meeting Arthur to meeting Henry. Catherine was no Mary-Sue and her determination to remain in the Tudor family is remarkable. I enjoyed her battles with Dona Elvira and was surprised with the treatment she received from Spain. 

I recommend to every Tudor fan.

  2. Hello Book Cupid!

    I found your link through goodreads.com, so I wanted to stop by and say hello! I am your newest blog follower!

    Patience, Princess Catherine reminds me of a movie I recently saw called A Royal Affair which is based on a true story. It's about a young girl from England who becomes the queen of Denmark by marrying King Christian VII who was rumored to be crazy. She ends up falling in love with the royal physician. Tragic but beautiful love story.

    Anywho, I am always looking for new friends and followers, so feel free to stop by my blog sometime!

    Best Wishes,
