had the power to part, and pronounce the binding "I will."

At last the sacred ceremony was completed. The two spiritual dignitaries, Gardiner, bishop of Winchester, and Cranmer, archbishop of Canterbury, then, in accordance with court etiquette, led the young bride into her apartments, in order to bless them, and once more to pray with her, before the worldly festivities should begin.

Catharine, however, pale and agitated, had yet sustained her part in the various ceremonies of the day with a true queenly bearing and dignity; and, as now with head proudly erect and firm step, she walked with a bishop at either side through the splendid apartments, no one suspected how heavy a burden weighed upon her heart, and what baleful voices were whispering in her breast.

This book is about Henry VIII's court during the last years of his reign, during his marriage to Catherine Parr. Catherine Parr did not want to marry King Henry VIII, she only complied with his wishes because she thought she might lose her life if she refused. Entering the court of Henry VIII as a queen was a very dangerous position. People plotted against Catherine Parr, and having to daily entertain a king that was cruel, sadistic, and moody was a difficult enough task. Catherine kept her life by using her mental fortitude, understanding her husband's mercurial temperament, keeping a watchful eye on her rivals, and using her considerable charm to nullify Henry's anger when it wad directed toward her. An entertaining and interesting read on the court of Henry VIII.
