Publisher's Summary

Katherine comes to the court of Edward III at the age of 15. The naïve convent-educated orphan of a penniless knight is dazzled by the jousts and the entertainments of court. Nevertheless, Katherine is beautiful, and she turns the head of the King's favourite son John of Gaunt. But he is married, and she is soon to be betrothed. A few years later their paths cross again and this time their passion for each other cannot be denied or suppressed. Katherine becomes the prince's mistress, and discovers an extraordinary world of power, pleasure and passion.

A favourite book of mine since the 1950's!

Would you try another book written by Anya Seton or narrated by Diana Bishop?

Yes and Yes! I have always loved Anya Seton's books, having read my first one, 'Katherine' 60 years ago, and many times since. It has been a real thrill to be able to have it read to me each night before falling asleep. Diana Bishop did a magnificent job of narrating it, and she kept my interest all the way through it.

I would love to have Anya Seton's "The Winthrop Woman" on Audible, which I also loved and read many times as a young woman.


Has Katherine put you off other books in this genre?

No, definitely not! Just the opposite!


Would you be willing to try another one of Diana Bishop’s performances?

Very much so!


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Katherine?

Not one single word!


Any additional comments?

Looking forward to listening to my second book
"Pillars of the Earth" which I am currently
downloading.
