Catherine Parr was a young child when she met the dashing, handsome King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, the queen for whom she was named. Throughout her life, Henry was a friend, an enemy, a confidant, an admirer, a supporter, and finally her husband. From Catherine's point of view, we see Henry's marriages, a large part of Tudor history, and her own life. Terry Donnelly keeps all this straight and the story flowing in an elegant reading that also expresses Catherine's noble background. As Donnelly takes us through each phase of Cat's life, her precise and crisp reading accents Cat's intelligent thoughtfulness. Her voice rises strongly at points to show Catherine's more passionate side. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
