Katherine

An inspiration and the benchmark by which I judge historical novels. Alison Weir ",A glorious example of romance in its most classic literary sense: exhilarating, exuberant, and rich with the jeweled tones of England in the 1300s.", Austin Chronicle Katherine is an epic novel of the love affair that changed historythat of Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, the ancestors of most of the British royal family. Set in the vibrant 14th century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the story features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent PlantagenetsEdward III, the Black Prince, and Richard IIwho ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the kings son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine. Their affair persists through decades of war, adultery, murder, loneliness, and redemption. Anya Seton's vivid rendering of the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Lancaster makes Katherine an unmistakable classic.
