Synopsis

Set in the vibrant fourteenth century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the classic romance Katherine features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets—Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II—who ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king's son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine. Their well-documented affair and love persist through decades of war, adultery, murder, loneliness, and redemption. This epic novel of conflict, cruelty, and untamable love has become a classic since its first publication in 1954.

This book is older than I am, but I was pleasantly suprised at how well it was written and I loved it. Seton's intrepretation of history made me feel like I was there with the characters and I was only sorry it was not a longer read.

AudiobooksNow review by Merredith on 2010-04-19 11:18:43

I first read this book back in college or high school..in fact, i read all of this author's books. a while ago, i was having a craving for some really good historical fiction, and all i kept finding was romance bleh so i decided to stick some old anya seton books on my list. sure enough, this one finally arrived. would i still like it? yes! it teaches me the basic history in an interesting way, and so detailed. this one is set in the 1300s and i love all the details, and learning about the duke john gaunt. its definitely not a fast read, but it never gets boring. i highly recommend it.

At around 500 pages, this novel falls into the category of epic, although it kind of drifts into soap opera territory at times. Overall, if you have an interest in this time period or any of the people involved in this based on a true story, I recomend this book.
