It is an informative book and I learned quite a deal, but one major issue was the connection to Queen Katherine Parr. Katherine Vaux, Lady Throckmorton was the uterine sister of Sir Thomas Parr and thus aunt to the queen. With that mistake I started to question other parts of the book, i.e. dates for family's births and deaths.
