    I have memories of always enjoying Jean Plaidy s historical fiction, but this one fell flat for me.It had momentum in the beginning, during Katharine s childhood with her mad King father Charles VI of France and her seductress mother Isabeau of France It kept that momentum when Katharine was given in marriage to the new conqueror of their country, Henry V of England It lost that momentum after Henry s death, which disappointed me because at that point in the story Katharine enters into an I have memories of always enjoying Jean Plaidy s historical fiction, but this one fell flat for me.It had momentum in the beginning, during Katharine s childhood with her mad King father Charles VI of France and her seductress mother Isabeau of France It kept that momentum when Katharine was given in marriage to the new conqueror of their country, Henry V of England It lost that momentum after Henry s death, which disappointed me because at that point in the story Katharine enters into an illicit relationship with one of her servants, Owen Tudor that last name sounds vaguely important and they have to keep their marriage and the multiple children that they have an absolute secret, hence the title The Queen s Secret It should arguably be the most interesting, suspenseful part of the book at t...

    This seemed written on a juvenile level It was just a little too cheesy for my tastes Although billed as historical fiction, so much of the book is contrary to the history books of this time period I am not sure I am interested in readingby this author, even though I had very high hopes.

    Meh I picked this up because a I have a friend who loves this author, b I love historical fiction, and c this is a period I know little about so wanted to readabout it But the writing style was so bland to me There was so little emotion It was mostly dialogues taking place in settings that weren t even described much, so it was impossible to picture any of it No real depth of character, all surface Really, it felt like the author was using a timeline and just writing dialog Meh I picked this up because a I have a friend who loves this author, b I love historical fiction, and c this is a period I know little about so wanted to readabout it But the writing style was so bland to me There was so little emotion It was mostly dialogues taking place in settings that weren t even described much, so it was impossible ...

    This was the first Plaidy book I d read in years, ever since high school actually I remembered loving her stuff back then, but as I read this one The Sun in Splendour, I had the sense that the books were copiously cribbed histories with a minimal effort at dramatizing the whole thing No doubt a reason why she was so prolific I still like Plaidy, and will go to her first before a wealth of other HF authors including such hyped stars of today like Elizabeth Chadwick and Sharon Kay Penma This was the first Plaidy book I d read in years, ever since high school actually I remembered loving her stuff back then, but as I read this one The Sun in Splendour, I had the sense that the books were copiously cribbed histories with a minimal effort at dramatizing the whole thing No doubt a reason why she was so prolific I still like Plaidy, and will go to her first before a wealth of other HF authors inclu...

    The story of Katherine of Valois, from her childhood in France to her death I really loved this book, it s my favorite Plaidy so far.I did find the writing a bit formal and stilted feeling, but that didn t take away from the story I felt like it actually made Katherine come aliveas if it was her upbringing and strict manners that influenced the writing.This book clears up where the Tudor claim to the throne came fromand boy was it tenuous Not that it ended up mattering, but it was The story of Katherine of Valois, from her childhood in France to her death I really loved this book, it s my favorite Plaidy so far.I did find the writing ...

    This was a fantastic retelling of the life of Katherine, wife of Henry V and later mother to the Tudor dynasty One thing I particularly enjoyed about her story is that unlike the majority of other women you read about in this genre, sh...

    This book was horrible The writing style made my eyes bleed The entire book was completely passive There was no action, little dialog, no emotion and little to no character development I wouldn t wish this book on anyone.

  10. Donie Nelson says:

    Was hoping to get a sense of who Catherine of Valois Owen Tudor were, but instead got cardboard characters and a story that skims the surface of a relationship that changed the course of English history Very disappointed in this writer.

    The Queen s Secret follows the life of Katherine of Valois, Queen of England When most people think of princesses, they think pampered little girls Katherine s life was far from easy She and her siblings were horribly neglected by their mother Their father was attentive when he was sane, but his sanity was often short lived Then, Katherine marries the King of England and her life is so wonderful Even during the best times, the scars left from her childhood remain When her husband dies and The Queen s Secret follows the life of Katherine of Valois, Queen of England When most people think of princesses, they think pampered little girls Katherine s life was far from easy She and her siblings were horribly neglected by their mother Their father was attentive when he was sane, but his sanity was often short lived Then, Katherine marries the King of England and her life is so wonderful Even during the best times, the scars left from her childhood remain When her husband dies and her son is taken from her, she finds a new love and creates a new family.One aspect of this book I like best is the subject I have been reading Phillipa Gregory s books on the War of the Roses and it is nice to read about those people s ancestor Poor Katherine was a sad figure It seems she just wanted to be safe and happy Even her happiness comes at a cost.I also liked the different writing style of Plaidy vers...

    Jean Plaidy is a wonderful historical author Her subjects are intriguing and because it s history things don t change Sometimes there are no happy endings but if you back and readabout the subject, you will begin to understand why Jean Plaidy doesn t get in depth so she is a good author for a first introduction to history especially British and European history For anyone who wants to learn about history but doesn t want tons of boring facts listed in order, this is the author for yo Jean Plaidy is a wonderful historical author Her subjects are intriguing and because it s history things don t change Sometimes there are no happy endings but if you back and readabout the subject, you will begin to...

    This was a bit disappointing I m a big Jean Plaidy fan, and her novel The Lady in the Tower is one of my favorite books on Anne Boleyn In fact, almost all of her Tudor novels were so well done, I had high hopes for this Instead it sort of ended up reading like a very...

    This book is a repetition of the same few themes over and over what a horrible childhood mother I had, my poor fill in the blank who died, I never knew love until, I was afraid for me my children my servants my husband and so ...
