Read full description of the books The Rose Without a Thorn: The Wives of Henry VIII:Beautiful and impressionable, young Katherine Howard is plucked from her home to become a lady-in-waiting at the court of Henry VIII, where she re-encounters her handsome cousin, Thomas Culpepper, whom she has loved since childhood. But when Katherine catches the eye of the aging and unhappily married king, she is forced to abandon her plans and marry King Henry. Katherine is dazzled by the royal life, but her bliss is short-lived, as rumours of her wayward past come back to haunt her, and her destiny takes a final, deadly turn.
Read information about the authorEleanor Alice Burford, Mrs. George Percival Hibbert was a British author of about 200 historical novels, most of them under the pen name Jean Plaidy which had sold 14 million copies by the time of her death. She chose to use various names because of the differences in subject matter between her books; the best-known, apart from Plaidy, are Victoria Holt (56 million) and Philippa Carr (3 million). Lesser known were the novels Hibbert published under her maiden name Eleanor Burford, or the pseudonyms of Elbur Ford, Kathleen Kellow and Ellalice Tate. Many of her readers under one penname never suspected her other identities.
