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. This epic novel of conflict, cruelty, and untamable love has become a classic since its first publication in 1954.… (mehr)

I did enjoy this book as a read, but there were just some parts of it that left me questioning, mostly as a result of the structure of the book. I think her writing is strong, but there were times where I needed to go back a few pages to connect actions because of how much description there was. This isn’t usually a problem for me, but since it is a fiction book, part of me usually expects a little less description. ( )

Although there is a good story and romance in here, it is somewhat lost in a haze of other stories and historical events. I felt overwhelmed by how much Seton crammed into it and also by my own general confusion over the Wars of the Roses and which person was which and who was related to who. Katherine is the through line of this and her life is interesting but she seems less of an interesting character, she mainly is buffeted around by events and the great event of her life is the romance with John. I know it is meant to be a great love match but Seton doesn't really develop it and it feels more like passionate but at times petulant teens more than grown adults. I was thoroughly drawn into the 14th century world but I think a few chunks could have safely been removed without much loss.

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. ( )
