CATHERINE PARR: WIFE, WIDOW, MOTHER, SURVIVOR

Synopsis

Catherine is remembered as the wife of King Henry VIII who survived but, without her strength of character it could have been very different. This biography shows another side to Catherine. Her life was indeed one of duty but, throughout, she attempted to escape her destiny and find happiness for herself. Ultimately, Catherine was betrayed and her great love affair with Thomas Seymour turned sour.
