Here are this week's lines, --------

'Nevertheless, I was , I am, a wife - you see, do you, that it is impossible for me to believe that for twenty years I was a harlot? Now the truth is , I have brought England little good, but I would be loath to bring her any harm.'
Spoken by Katherine of Aragon.
Taken from 'Wolf Hall' by Hilary Mantel, page 453.

I don't have a book on me at the moment or I'd play. Excellent idea.

Katherine sounds like an interesting person and this sounds like a good book. This must be the big chunkster you were talking about. Good teaser.

That really makes me curious - an excellent teaser! Is she talking about an annullment?

It sounds like a great book! I had to look it up at Amazon to read a bit more about it(I noticed that it's not available until October).

Margaret said...

I'll have to get this book sometime! The Tudors and the Stewarts are my favourite periods in British history - but maybe that's because I know more about those times than others. Currently I'm reading more "modern" history.

Ah Katherine...what a strong woman.
