Alison Weir's ten favorite books

Alison Weir's new novel The Marriage Game is about Elizabeth I's scandalous affair with Robert Dudley.

One of the author's ten favorite books, as shared at the Daily Express:
KATHARINE by Anya Seton (1954)

Still my all-time favourite historical novel and I know that many people feel the same way about it. It charms me as much now as it did when I was 15, and it inspired me back then to write historical fiction. It’s a benchmark for the genre and vividly evokes the world of the 14th century.
Read about the other books on the list.
