The story starts in 1461 right after the death of her father Duke Richard of York and his son Edmund in one of the battle of the War of the Roses. The story has as a background the ups and downs of the English civil war in the 15th century, but the essence is a love story: the love between Margarte and the married Anthony Woodwille, Earl Rivers and brother-in-law of King Edward IV: Margaret is however married off to the Duke of Burgundy who right the opposite from Anthony.
The whole story is just romantic stuff and all too one sided. All is in black and white. It is quite "a Barbara Cartland" like novel and it was really getting on my nerves. If you want a love story then it is your kind of book; if you want a historic novel better look somewhere else.
