Thank you to Charlie Fenton, the regular book reviewer for the Tudor Society, for your review of Wendy J. Dunn‘s book “Falling Pomegranate Seeds“.
It’s a private review for members of the Tudor Society only, but we’re able to share a few excerpts from it here!
Sometimes the simplest things in this novel are the greatest, for instance seeing Katherine’s interactions with Maria, who was tutored alongside her and will stay a life-long friend of hers in England as well as Spain.
Book reviewer Charlie Fenton clearly loves this book. She goes on to say:
This book is a masterpiece in so many ways; it covers Katherine’s early life (which is rarely explored) and gives life to a frequently overlooked figure and shows life in great detail in late 15th century Spain. It is very well written and gives the reader the impression that they are actually there, with minor details about everyday life to political decisions which impact the whole country.
We really do have to agree that this is an incredible book – well done Wendy Dunn for writing your “masterpiece”.
