Summary
By the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel of passion and power at the court of a medieval killer, a riveting new Tudor tale featuring King Henry VIII’s sixth wife Kateryn Parr.

Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives—King Henry VIII—commands her to marry him.

Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn’s trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent.

But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry’s dangerous gaze turns on her. The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy—the punishment is death by fire and the king’s name is on the warrant...

From the bestselling author who has illuminated all of Henry’s queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power, and education at the court of a medieval killer.

One of the best and I hated for it to end. Queen Katherine was a remarkable woman and survived because she was smart.

"The Taming of the Queen" touched me deeply. Katherine Parr is the property of men many times and makes the best of it. I had a hard time reading the "taming" parts. Philippa Gregory knows how twisted Henry is by this time and how much he would despise a woman writing, publishing and being "unwomanly". She took it and survived. I just wished she had enjoyed her life without Henry longer.

One of my favourite authors, however this is the first time I have listened to an audiobook of hers. Excellent story, historically accurate and the narrator bought it to life.

I really enjoyed this book! I didn't know that it is the last? in a series when I started it. After listening for a short while I realized there must have been more books about Henry's wives... But this book easily stands alone. I never felt like I was missing the back story! Although, I will be looking for more by this author :-) As a huge bonus - the narrator was fantastic!
