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. Set in the vibrant 14th century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the story features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets-- Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II-- who ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king's son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine. Their well-documented affair and love persist through decades of war, adultery, murder, loneliness, and redemption.

What a time to live through! Chaucer, plague, peasant's revolt. I love the way this book has fixed the history in my mind. It has made vivid to me the way people lived, how they were different and how they were the same. It has become one of the points I return to, and other historical events happened before or happened after - and often connected by a spiderweb of people, or places. There are so many connections that it must have been a fulcrum - an important time that leads even to the present. ( )

Good "vintage" historical novel. It gets a little preachy at times, but I guess it's understandable considering the setting. For those who like historical facts, this novel gets only the main events and creates the drama from there - it shouldn't be taken as an accurate portrayal of events and characters. ( )

Katherine is one of the finest books I've ever read. Meticulously researched and detailed, engaging, consuming, intelligent - it is at the top of the class of historical fiction and will be the book against which I judge all future historical fiction. It took me ten days to read it, but I was never bored or in a rush to get to the end of the story.

The book follows Katherine de Roet as she grows up in 14th century Britain. Katherine is raised in a convent and wishes to enter the novitiate, but instead is married off to Hugh Swynford, a man whom she does not love but can tolerate. When the handsome and powerful Duke of Lancaster (John of Gaunt) enters her life, Katherine falls in love and spends most of the remainder of her life in a relationship with him. Through her eyes, we look at history. It's fascinating history, for so much happened in England in the 14th century.

This beautiful book is now one of my favourites. ( )

I am on a never-ending quest to find historical fiction (the historically accurate Kings and Queens type) that measures up to Sharon Kay Penman. I stumbled upon this one in a random google search and I thought it was pretty good, but, alas, not Penman-good.

It's about Katherine Swynford, who is born to a lesser knight and orphaned at a young age. Her beauty gains her a noble husband, Hugh Swynford. She also meets John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster and son of King Edward III. He falls in love with her and they have a long relationship after her husband dies while he his married to Constance of Castile. She has four children with him who are subsequently legitimized when he marries Katherine towards the end of his life. Later their ancestors will be both the Tudor/Stuart line and Edward IV/Richard III.

I liked this book and found it rich in historical detail and interesting in the political sense. I felt it focused a bit too much on Katherine, though, and her inner turmoil. I got a little bored and wished Seton would have spent more time on the bigger picture.

This was fun and a nice diversion from heavier reading. ( )
