Teaser Tuesdays: The Sixth Wife


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
To play along just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is The Sixth Wife by Jean Plaidy, a pseudonym for Eleanor Hibbert who also wrote under various other names including Victoria Holt and Philippa Carr.  Years ago I read a couple of the Victoria Holt romances and I’m pretty sure I read at least one under each of the other two names.

So here is my Teaser Tuesdays offering:

‘Beware of my lord Bishop,’ whispered Anne.

And afterwards, Katharine often heard those words when the hangings rustled or when the wind howled through the trees.

‘Beware . . . Beware . . . Beware of my lord Bishop.’  p.112

TheSixthWifeJean Plaidy brings to life the inner turmoil of Katharine Parr when, after being a widow twice, she is chosen by the king to be his sixth wife, a role that brings anyone who plays it closer to the axe.  I hope you find these few lines as intriguing as they are ominous.  Watch for my review soon.

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.

    Oh, yes, very ominous sounding! I do not often read books about the royal families, but occasionally one interests me. This does sound good.


  2. I don’t read a lot of historical fiction these days, but I do love the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “DRIVING LESSONS”
