Description

In the court of King Henry VIII, nothing is free- and love comes at the highest price of all. When Kitty Tylney's best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII's heart and brings Kitty to court, she's thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat's shadow, Kitty's now caught between two men-the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat's meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Professional reviews

"After the disappointment of his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII wants a wife who is young and vivacious, a description that perfectly fits the lovely and spoiled Catherine Howard. Jennifer Ikeda gives voice to the story of Catherine's meteoric rise and devastating fall, as observed by her best friend from childhood, Kitty Tylney. Both Longshore and Ikeda let the innate drama of Catherine's story shine through without adding melodrama. Ikeda portrays Kitty realistically and ably differentiates the other characters. She is particularly effective at conveying just how spoiled Catherine is. Ikeda is well cast in this role, making GILT a wonderful listening experience. J.L.K.
