A spirited and powerful examination of patriarchy, sexual politics and women’s rights.
A complicated marriage, a secret relationship and one woman’s fight for education and equal rights of her husband’s daughters puts her life on the line. The complex union between Catherine Parr and King Henry VIII is rife with the threat of violence and the lure of deceit.
Hailed as “lively, contemporary, unapologetic” by The Globe and Mail, The Last Wife is a modern-day telling of the compelling relationship between the former king and queen of England.
