Queen's Gambit by Elizabeth Freemantle

Katherine Parr, the recently widowed Lady Latimer, has rejoined Henry VIII's court. As she mourns her loss, she finds comfort in Thomas Seymour. But Katherine has also attracted the attention of the King. Soon, Thomas is dispatched to a foreign court and Katherine becomes Queen Katherine. Katherine tries to find contentment in her new position, but longs for her lost lover.
Told by Katherine's maid Dot, this book charts the last years of Queen Katherine Parr. I liked Dottie. She kept the story interesting and different. She showed a different side of Katherine, more motherly. I really enjoyed this book. A really great book. I can't wait to read another book by Elizabeth Freemantle.
