This book tells the tale of Catherine of Aragon and how she came to marry Henry VIII. I found this book a refreshing break from the usual YA historical fiction, which tends to sacrifice historical accuracy for the sake of "appealing to modern readers" or beating us over the head with the author's opinions. All the characters came off as authentic, both as members of their time and as people, and I found myself cheering for Catherine as she tries to make her way in the world.

Probably for twelve and up, though it will probably appeal to girls more than boys.
