Well written historical drama about the mother of the Tudor dynasty
Great historical fiction about Catherine of Valois, mother to the Tudor line. Joanna Hickson creates credible characters based on what is known about the Valois princess and Henry V. Told though the point of view of a devoted wet nurse, it's a well written account of life in the 15th century. Filled with villains, scoundrels, and saints, it has all the ingredients for royal historical drama.
