Narrator Patience Tomlinson's performance breathes strength, honesty, and defiance into this heartrending story, told through the eyes of the sixth wife of Henry VIII. Tomlinson delivers Katherine Parr's narrative with a tone of earnest determination, describing the loss of her husband and the unrequited love of her torturous marriage to Henry VIII, who is portrayed as a nightmarish lout in this historic account. Tomlinson doesn't miss Katherine's gentle, self-deprecating humor, or the strong will that drives her, even during her darkest moments with Henry, making listeners feel as if they're hearing a private confession rather than a work of fiction. Tomlinson captures the supporting cast--particularly Katherine's first husband, John, and the odious Henry--with subtle shifts in tone that perfectly round out this noteworthy performance.
