This classic romance novel tells the true story of the love affair that changed history-that of Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, the ancestors of most of the British royal family.
About the Author
Anya Seton (1906-1990) wrote ten bestselling historical novels, including Avalon, Devil Water, Foxfire, Green Darkness, and My Theodosia. Although she lived primarily in Greenwich, Connecticut, she travelled extensively in order to do the research necessary for the life-like feel of her fiction. Wanda McCaddon began recording books for the fledgling audiobook industry in the early 1980s and has since narrated well over six hundred titles for major audio publishers, as well as abridging, narrating, and coproducing classic titles for her own company, Big Ben. Audiobook listeners may be familiar with her voice under one of her two "nom de mikes," Donada Peters and Nadia May. The recipient of an Audie nomination and more than twenty-five Earphones Awards, AudioFile magazine has named her one of recording's Golden Voices. Wanda also appears regularly on the professional stage in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Praise for Katherine…
"Seton breathes life into this little-documented historical fact a glorious example of romance in its most classic literary sense." ---The Austin Chronicle
