Teaser Tuesday


Today's teaser is from The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory. I've just started it so expect another teaser next week. The book is about Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII. At the beginning of the book (or maybe the whole book, I don't know) she is known as Catalina.

From page 93

Catalina looked around from her prayers and smiled in pure triumph. Then, absolutely silently, she crept into bed beside him, and carefully arranging herself so that not even the hem of her nightgown could touch him, composed herself for sleep.

Now, when you leave a comment on MizB that reads "I finally got mine up." well, you know, that was the best part of your teaser, no disrespect to Ms. Gregory. (wink)

I just love Philippa Gregory's books! I hope you enjoy this one - It is one of the few I haven't read yet!

Haha Scobberlotcher! Seems that Catalina was trying to avoid that very thing!

I hope that you enjoy this book. I loved it although I am not sure about the historical accuracy of the personal relationships but it's nice to fantasize. I also enjoyed The Other Boleyn Girl but not quite as much. I tried to read the Wideacre trilogy but found it entirely too sexually disturbing.
