hypnotic and compelling,
This review is from: The Rose of York: Fall from Grace (Paperback)
My husband knowing my interest in Richard III picked this up in a charity shop. I was so hooked I couldn't put it down until I finished it. The death of Richard brought tears to my eyes and although I knew the ending I kept wishing that Richard had won and driven usurper Tudor into the dust.
History has been cruel to Richard - it is unlikely he would kill his nephews and yet allow other claimants to the throne to live peacefully. Also I often wonder why Richard didn't execute Lord Stanley who was known for his treachery and loyalty to Henry Tudor. This mercy is hardly the action of a man driven by ambition to kill any challenges to his right to the throne of England.
I have always been curious about Richard's relationship with his niece and puzzled by Anne and Elizabeth appearing in identical gowns. Chain stores didn't exist in Medieval England so this must have been deliberate on the part of at least one of the women.
This writer is gifted and I will be anxiously awaiting delivery of the rest of the series.
