Few periods in history were as full of scandal, intrigue and deceit as the rule of England’s King Henry VIII. Known for his six wives, several of whom met untimely ends, Henry’s court was a cutthroat world of gossip and wealth, a complex game of social hierarchies rife with jealousy and back-stabbing.

Players armed themselves with rumors, secrets and lies, and friends switched loyalties and betrayed one another simply to win favor with those in power. Sounds a lot like high school, doesn’t it? Minus the beheadings, of course.

Catherine Howard’s brief reign as queen is the time period setting for Davis novelist Katherine Longshore’s “Gilt.” Booklist calls the book “royally riveting for the reader.”

“Gilt” is a reminder that history is also full of drama, heady romance and rigid social rules that demand to be broken. With lush descriptions of jewels and fashions, a page-turning plot and a cast of dangerously handsome noblemen, “Gilt” promises to hook readers of all ages.

It is the first installment of a series planned by Longshore, who will present her book Thursday, June 21, in the Leake Room at the Woodland Public Library, 250 First St. in Woodland. This is the last of a series of author events sponsored by the Friends of the Woodland Public Library.

A members-only reception, with light appetizers, begins at 5:30 p.m., at which attendees will meet Longshore. Nonmembers may join at the door and receive a $5 book buck, good at any Friends book sale.

Longshore will speak at 6:30 p.m. Those who dress in period costume for her presentation will be eligible to win a prize. Representatives of The Avid Reader will be on hand selling books for purchase and signing.

Longshore grew up on the Northern California coast, then created her own major in cross-cultural studies and communications while in college, planning to travel and write. Four years, six continents, and countless pairs of shoes later, she went to England for two weeks, stayed five years and discovered history.
