Catherine Howard married King Henry VIII on July 28, 1540, but their fateful union lasted only nineteen months before the young queen was executed for treason and adultery. This detailed and highly researched book investigates the life of the doomed Catherine and the events that lead to her downfall, including her previous engagement to Francis Dereham and her affair with Thomas Culpepper. Historian Gareth Russell weaves a rich tapestry of life in sixteenth-century England, rife with gossip, deception, ambition, and unrest. Delve into Young and Damned and Fair for an entirely new perspective on Henry VIII's fifth wife—and the web of politics and treachery that ensnared her. (SM)
