Publisher's Summary

The Queen's Child by Sunday Times best-selling historian Alison Weir is a companion piece to the captivating final novel in the Six Tudor Queens series, Katharine Parr: The Sixth Wife.

"I look at her, playing happily with not a care in the world, and wonder how God can have inflicted so many tragedies on an innocent."

Mary Seymour is just a few weeks old when her mother, the Dowager Queen Katharine Parr, dies from childbed fever. She cannot know the tragedy that has befallen their home at Sudeley, or the secrets that her father, the Lord Admiral Thomas Seymour, is hiding. 

Lost in grief, he entrusts baby Mary to the care of Elizabeth Aglionby, one of Katharine's closest companions. But Elizabeth knows that the Lord Admiral has enemies in high places - and that he stands on the edge of a ruinous fall from grace. And, if the worst should happen, what will become of his infant daughter?

NO ONE KNOW’s WHAT HAPPENED QUEEN KATHARINE’S DAUGHTER MARY PARR

This is total fiction. No one to this day knows what happened to Katherine Parr’s daughter Mary. She simply disappeared. It was thought she might have resided with the Anglioby’s Northern clients of the Parr’s, but there is no proof of record so it is thought Mary died.
I am amazed a child of a late Queen could just simply disappear from the ends of the earth. Surely there must be something somewhere written about what happened?

What a waste of time

Such a shame that this book should have been a standalone. I love Alison Weir’s writing but this is indulgent nonsense- albeit based on historical facts!
It would have been better served as a adjunct to one of her other books about Catherine Parr or the Tudors.
