GILT BY KATHERINE LONGSHORE PDF

The subject matter is what brought Ms. There is a brash, in-your-face quality to the entire story that accentuates just how dangerous this era was for anyone caught up in the machinations of the Tudor court. Longshore does an admirable job of explaining the notoriously complicated politics well enough that even the most ignorant reader will understand the dangers facing Catherine Howard and Kitty. Kitty must discover the true meaning of friendship as well as determine her own path towards happiness. Cat learns to rue her actions through the ultimate penalty. It is a coming-of-age story with fatal consequences if the lessons are not fully learned.

The subject matter is what brought Ms. There is a brash, in-your-face quality to the entire story that accentuates just how dangerous this era was for anyone caught up in the machinations of the Tudor court. Longshore does an admirable job of explaining the notoriously complicated politics well enough that even the most ignorant reader will understand the dangers facing Catherine Howard and Kitty. Kitty must discover the true meaning of friendship as well as determine her own path towards happiness.

Cat learns to rue her actions through the ultimate penalty. It is a coming-of-age story with fatal consequences if the lessons are not fully learned. Cat is awful — selfish and vain-glorious.

She lives to serve herself, and one does not have to know Tudor history to know in advance that her marriage to King Henry VIII is not going to end well.

Still, one cannot help but sympathize with this young woman torn between friendship and faithfulness, the glitter and glamour of the Court, and a future filled with the unfamiliar. Longshore does an admirable job of taking an unknown historical figure and bringing her life. The descriptions are robust, allowing readers to easily imagine the scenes, the scents, and the sounds. It is a fabulous behind-the-scenes view of a not-so-fabulous period in history. All affiliate income is used to support the blog.

Classroom Connections: GILT by Katherine Longshore

Classroom Connections is a series meant to introduce teachers to new books. Please tell us about your book. What inspired you to write this story? History was my first inspiration — the beauty and texture and squalor and unprecedented change. I wondered if perhaps she could have been something different. Because GILT is an historical novel, my primary sources of research are biographies and historical accounts.

Gilt by Katherine Longshore - review

A substantive, sobering historical read, with just a few heaving bodices. Cat rescues mousy friend Kitty to attend her in her chambers, giving Kitty and readers an intimate view of that history. Hewing closely to what little is known about Howard's circumstances, Longshore allows Kitty to thread the maze of alliances that was the court of Henry VIII. Kitty's narration is formal, but her language is modern, a balance between authenticity and readability that is mostly successful.
