I was ten years old when I discovered I might be a witch... The sixteenth century: the era of queens. Catherine de Medici is an impressionable, mystical girl. She is orphaned and taken hostage by her enemies, and manipulated by her advisors; yet she is to become France's most powerful regent. History will make her name synonymous with evil, but she is all too human. Humiliated at the hands of her husband and his mistress, and haunted by her gift of second sight, she must rise above her troubles and fight to save her dynasty and adopted country from the brutal Wars of Religion... In THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI, C W Gortner vividly depicts the turbulent life of one of history's most notorious yet misunderstood women.

The best history fiction I have ever read ! It's so complex !
Catherine de Medici come alive as a human, as a woman, as a mom, and as a queen. Not a rumor as if she was a witch !
I can't really put down. It grabbed me from the first page to last. I have this book on my iPad and my iPhone. I even read when I was walking ! Must read ! It's real good !
