A Book to Read and Love: Katherine - Anya Seaton

 

A short summary of Katherine:

The story of Katharine Swynford, the mistress-then-wife of John of Gaunt.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Tis easy to hate, lady dear, when you be poor and starving."


Questions to ponder while reading Katherine:

What makes a person noble?

What makes a family?

My thoughts about the book:

An engrossing bit of medieval history.

Solidly researched.

Historical fiction at its finest.
