Das Geheimnis der Muse erzählt von zwei jungen Frauen, deren Leben durch ein Gemälde schicksalhaft miteinander verwoben sind: Olive, eine talentierte Malerin am Vorabend des Spanischen Bürgerkriegs, und Odelle, eine angehende Schriftstellerin im London der Swinging Sixties. London, 1967. Odelle Bastien, aus Trinidad nach England gekommen, um ihren Traum vom Schreiben zu verwirklichen, ergattert einen Job in der renommierten Kunstgalerie Skelton. Durch einen sensationellen Fund – ein Gemälde des seit dem Spanischen Bürgerkrieg verschollenen Künstlers Isaac Robles –, wird Odelle in eine Geschichte verstrickt, die ihr Leben völlig auf den Kopf stellt. Denn um das Gemälde rankt sich ein folgenschweres Geheimnis, das ins Jahr 1936 zurückreicht, als Olive Schloss, eine begabte junge Malerin, in Andalusien auf den Künstler und Revolutionär Isaac Robles trifft. Eine Begegnung, die ungeahnte Konsequenzen nach sich zieht ... Zwischen dem schillernden London der Sechziger und dem schwülheißen Andalusien der Dreißiger entspinnt sich diese fesselnde und betörende Geschichte um große Ambitionen und noch größere Begierden.

Meisterin des Wortes Heimlich unterhält die Witwe Kateryn Parr eine Affäre mit ihrer großen Liebe, dem Baron Thomas Seymour. Doch als König Henry VIII. um ihre Hand anhält, hat sie keine Wahl: Sie muss das Angebot annehmen und darf Thomas nie wiedersehen. Kateryn weiß genau, in welche Gefahr sie sich begibt – schließlich wird sie die sechste Gemahlin des launischen Königs. Von zwei ihrer Vorgängerinnen trennte er sich, zwei ließ er hinrichten. Mit der Zeit wähnt sie sich aber in Sicherheit: Im Herzen des Hofes gründet sie einen Studierzirkel und bestimmt als Regentin die Geschicke des Landes in Henrys Abwesenheit. Doch als Befürworterin religiöser Reformen zieht sie schließlich doch Henrys Zorn auf sich ... «Philippa Gregory, Königin des historischen Romans, setzt dieser Heldin ein unvergessliches Denkmal.» (People Magazine) «Niemand schreibt besser über die Tudors als Philippa Gregory.» (Publishers Weekly) «‹Die letzte Gemahlin des Königs› ist nicht nur ein faszinierender Roman über eine überraschend wenig bekannte Zeit der Tudor-Dynastie, sondern vermittelt auch das bedrückende Gefühl des puren Terrors, den das Leben unter einem launischen Tyrannen mit sich bringt – besonders, wenn man mit ihm verheiratet ist.» (Reader’s Digest) «Drastisch schildert Gregory die Beziehung von Kateryn Parr und ihrem Gemahl Henry VIII. Genauso gut beschreibt sie auch die religiösen und politischen Spannungen im England der Tudors. Fesselnd.» (The Times) «Gregorys komplexes Porträt des alternden Königs und seiner sinnlichen, gelehrten Braut wird Tudor-Fans begeistern.» (Publishers Weekly)
