The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory

I just finished reading "The Constant Princess" by Philippa Gregory last night.

It's a story about Queen Katherine of Aragon, King Henry VIII's first wife.

She was a Spanish princess, born and raised to be Princess of Wales and then Queen of England. Despite the things that happened to here life as the Infanta of Spain, Princess of Wales and Queen of England, she kept her composure and act as a princess and future queen.

It's an interesting story because it's a historical novel, a story about real people. I first got interested in reading this after watching the movie "The Other Boleyn Girl", based on the the book also written by Philippa Gregory. Actually, "The Constant Princess" is kind of a prequel to "The Other Boleyn Girl".

If your interested in these kinds of novel, this is a must read.
