Summary (From the publisher):

The marriage of Katharine of Aragon and Henry VIII is seemingly ideal. Katharine, although five years Henry's senior, is attractive and eager to please. Her insignia is the pomegranate, the Arabic sign of fertility; she will give the King what he desires most: an heir to the throne.

But tragedy strikes when their infant son dies, just fifty-two days old. Katharine suffers a devastating series of miscarriages, each of which only encourages the King's wandering eye. To make matters worse, Katharine, an unwitting emissary for her manipulative and greedy father, King Ferdinand, finds herself caught up in the dangerous web of political intrigue.

Dominating the scene is the inordinately vain and egotistical young King Henry. His eye for women and his lust for power will only make Katharine more vulnerable to betrayal during the years of living in the ironic shadow of the pomegranate.
