I loved this novel because it explores in great detail the relationship between Anne Neville and Richard of Gloucester and then I loved it even more because it STOPPED before their lives began to go wrong and left me feeling happy

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced romance, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this is based on real historical figures it is important to know that it is an imaginary story with no true basis in fact. Having accepted this premise, the story is fast moving, the characters compelling and the writing is excellent. Very romantic, with a nice humorous touch - makes you want to read the next in the series.

This review is from: Fortune's Wheel (Hardcover)
Well researched and well balanced depiction of the early life of Richard III. The author is a wonderful writer, able to convey emotion so well. Richard III comes across as a real person with real strengths and weaknesses and I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the period

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous fiction, 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These books about one of Edward IV's daughters and her loves is great fun and the author obviously researches the period thoroughly. She makes it clear in her notes that this should not be taken as a 'factual' account of the times but is an imaginary scenario which not everyone will agree with. As she points out, this is a work of fiction and is meant to entertain, which it defintely does. Can't wait for the next installment!

Under the Hog : A Novel of Richard III

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Well balanced view of RIII, 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great book about Richard III - I can't get enough of them! This is an excellent one. Richard is portrayed as generally positive although the physical description of him is bizarre to say the least! (Of course, this was written before his bones were found). Although it is not 100% favourable to Richard, it is well-balanced and highlights a lot of the good things he did.

One of my favourites.
