I could re-read Philippa Gregory's books over & over & over again. And each time I re-read one of them, I always seems to focus on a different aspect of the story which leads me to research deeper into that piece. I have read this book 2-3 times already, but this time around felt different after having read Gregory's newest book "Three Queens, Three Sisters". Because each of her Plantagenet & Tudor books are intertwined, you almost need to read & re-read the books so that you can have a new view going into the book each time.

"The Constant Princess" kicks off the Tudor era series with Catherine of Aragon, 1st wife of King Henry VIII. It begins with her childhood, continues with her trip to England to wed Arthur, Prince of Whales. After Arthur's death 1 1/2 years later, she is held in England for political reasons, & eventually marries Arthur's younger brother, Henry, fulfilling her life's purpose (as she sees it) to be queen of England.

Age recommendation: 14 & over

On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it a 9.
