After reading The Beaufort Bride, I could not wait to read the second book of the trilogy. It did not disappoint. We do not know what Margaret felt and thought or even what she really looked like, but we do know that she loved her son and would have died for him, as any good mother would. This book shows Margaret in a good light and gives her the benefit of the doubt. She has always been seen as a cold hearted woman with only thoughts for her son and herself, but this book has given rise to question the previously held conceptions of Margaret Beaufort. In this book even Margaret questions the thought that Richard would have had his nephews murdered and states that even though his reign was cut short, he did show signs of being a good king. Could Margaret have had the boys murdered to clear the way for Henry? This Margaret couldn't have. I liked this Margaret and up until now, I have never liked her. I can not wait to read the final book and find out how Miss. Arnopp describes the way she supposedly treated her daughter in law, Elizabeth of York. I hope there isn't too long to wait. Thank you Miss. Arnopp for giving me a likeable Margaret Beaufort.

By Terry Tyler TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 24 Feb. 2017

I liked The Beaufort Bride ~ it was a nicely written piece of historical fiction that got better as it went along, certainly good enough to make me want to read the next book, but I wouldn't have numbered it amongst my favourites. This book, however, is in a different class. I don't know how long after the first book it was written, but the writing itself seems to have come on in leaps and bounds.

At first, I wondered if it was simply that I was now reading about the woman, not the young girl, but it's not that; I just felt more passion and depth in this book, far more complex characterisation. I felt as if I was stepping into the story, rather than just reading about Margaret.

It's interesting to see different historical writers' take on history, and in The Beaufort Woman, Judith Arnopp had made more of Margaret's involvement with Elizabeth Woodville, the wife of Edward IV, than was probably factual, but I can see why she did this; it's so hard, when writing about a subject as broad as the Wars of the Roses from one point of view, to deliver information, as the key events happened in so many places, with not everyone party to all of them. I think Ms Arnopp managed to do this masterfully. As with most books about this complex period, I'd say that it helps if you already know the history before reading the fiction.

But what a story! I remember commenting after I'd read another book about the period (Jasper, by Tony Riches), that one hardly needs the intrigue of fiction like Game of Thrones, when this stuff all really happened. This was brought home to me once more. And something else: I mentioned, in the Beaufort Bride, that I thought Elizabeth I must have taken certain traits from her great grandmother. In this, it struck me how Henry VIII took after his grandfather, Edward IV.

Loved it. Highly recommended. Now I'm going to see if the third part, The King's Mother, is available yet.

After reading the first book in this trilogy, I was very anxious to see how Judith Arnopp continued with her exploration of the enigma which is Margaret Beaufort. As other commentators point out, there are several aspects to Margaret's life which confuse the researcher, and most of these cannot be proved one way or the other. What I can say without doubt, is that Ms Arnopp gives us a brilliantly realised alternative to the normally accepted interpretations of Margaret. As always, the wealth of period detail brings us close to our subject, and gives us a more likeable and acceptable Beaufort Woman. Whatever your feelings about Margaret, you will enjoy reading this book. As other reviewers have said, the past is still gloriously alive in Ms Arnopp's work, and you cannot put it down.
I can't wait to read the final part.
