5.0 out of 5 stars I,Richard Plantagenet :Tante le Desiree:Volume 1., 26 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book first from Kindle Books and enjoyed it so much that I had to have it in paperback . This book is written in the first person with Richard telling his story . The title means All that I desire a quotation written by Richard himself as as a very young man. The book begins with Richard a young man of 18 leading the vanguard for his brother Edward in the battle of Barnet against his former friend Richard Neville ,Duke of Warwick and his brother John Neville who have changed their alliance from York to Lancastrian and are joining with Margaret of Anjou and her son Prince Edward, heir to the Lancastrian King Henry V1 . Edward of York has returned to England to reclaim his throne as Edward1V with his brothers George Duke of Clarence and the youngest brother Richard ,Duke of Gloucester. We are immediately part of the battle you feel the mud the fog and the fear and hear the sound of swords and the swing of the battle axes for here is Richard the warrior. This is a Richard we have not met before a young man who has to deal with his scholiosis who feels inferior to his oldest brother because of this. However Richard Is also witty ,a lover of books and music and also has enjoyed lying with women this Richard is no prude. We follow Richard in his pursuit of Ann Neville , we meet his two bastard children John and Katherine and his young son Edward by his wife Ann Neville.Richard weeps at the reburial of his father Richard Duke of York and his brother Edmund we weep also and feel his despair at the execution of his brother the Duke of Clarence. We follow him with the Duke of Albany into the battles with Scotland. Janet Reedman makes the reader feel there with Richard hearing his inner most fears but also .sharing in his love of music and books . I now can hardly wait for volume two as we leave Richard saddened by the diminishing health of his brother the King disappointed in his eldest brother but still loyal .

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gloucestre Chronicles by C J Lock, 7 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is appropriately named as it highlights selected events in the life of Richard ,Duke of Gloucester, who was later to become King Richard 111, and revolves around the issues of love and loyalty.
The introduction of fictional characters and events brings thought- provoking aspects to the narrative, and does not detract from the major themes of love and loyalty, particularly with regard to Anne Neville, his wife, Edward IV, his brother and Francis Neville , his friend from childhood. Richard's divided loyalties towards Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick, and others are dealt with sympathetically and the author uses her descriptive skills to enable the reader to feel a participant in the story.
I look forward to a sequel to this intriguing aspect of English history.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Roaring Tide by Richard Unwin, 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought The Roaring Tide: A Tale of High Treason (Laurence the Armourer Book 3) several weeks ago having read books one and two I was not disappointed offers interesting theories relating to Perkin Warbeck thought to be Richard Duke of York one of the Princes who vanished from the tower. Learn also about James 111 of Scotland who supported Richard's claim to the throne. Writer shows great understanding of armour and weaponry in those times. Read this book you won't be disappointed.
