What is it About?
Two different centuries, two different Katherines and both (according to the Queen) a threat to the throne.

My Thoughts:

Two Katherines who only want to live happily ever after with their husbands but the royal family only sees them as a threat to the throne.  Even though they are a century apart they still want the same.

Whether this story is based on much fact I do not know.  I do know it took me awhile to start enjoying it.  Back and forth between Kates in each chapter did confuse me. The Kates stories  were broken up by chapters and as I was just getting into one Kate  then we go back to the other.  I felt bad for the girls and yet also that they kinda brought bad luck on to themselves. It still draws you in the story inside of the story about the two brothers who may have been killed by Richard III I didn’t really feel any connection.  If the story was about those two then maybe I would have cared more but it was just side story.
