Katherine (Coronet Books)

Katherine  - Anya Seton Meticulously researched historical fiction about John of Gaunt (Duke of Lancaster) and his longtime mistress Katherine Swynford, whom he eventually marries.Seton has captured the times perfectly, from the excesses of the wealthy to the privations of the poor. She spent a lot of time researching the book, even traveling to the various locations where Swynford and Lancaster visited and/or lived so that she might be accurate in her portrayals.Highly recommended for those who love historical fiction.
