DOWNLOAD Ä The Sixth Wife S drawn deeper into the web of politics ensnaring her oldest friend it gradually becomes clear that she has her own dark tale to tell For though Thomas might betray his wife for power Catherine might betray her for passion risking everything she has in a world where love is a luxury not even royalty can easily afford. I was very disappointed by this book by both the author s writing style and the premise of the story Not enough historical truth or even plausibility for a true lover of historical fiction
