Cool--I was wondering whether this would be coming out in the US anytime soon.

I'm thinking this is HF, since she's already published a NF on Katherine.

I put in a purchase request at the library. Let's see if they get it.

I think it's just a US version of her biography of Katherine Swynford that's been published already in the UK. The same thing happened with her biography of Queen Isabella--different titles for the US and the UK.

Well we have a mystery on our hands, here's the UK info on this book for 2009, here's the link for the NF book on UK, and same book on Amazon US.

Page counts are different.

Misfit,

I was going to ask, hadn't Weir already published a book on Katehrine Swinford?? I am positive I have been passing it over in my local library for a good few months now.
