**REVIEWS FOR HOUSE OF BEAUFORT**
"The Beauforts were key players in the dramatic history of late medieval England, taking their place centre stage long before Margaret Beaufort’s son Henry Tudor won the crown at Bosworth in 1485. Here, Nathen Amin puts them in the spotlight, telling their remarkable story with insight, passion and verve." - Dr Helen Castor, Author of She-Wolves
"Certainly, this book seems to have been thoroughly researched, the evidence carefully assessed, and the conclusions cautiously reached. He’s managed to pull together the threads of a complex story and present it in an understandable and, I must say, a thoroughly entertaining way."
"Nathen Amin has drawn on a countless amount of resources in order to produce such an interesting level of detail...If you are new to the subject, this is the number one place to begin. The author has written a book without bias, simply presenting facts written to be entertaining, instead of heavy and academic"
"Beautifully written and very well researched"
"This is a book every history buff needs to read if they are interested in finding out about the roots of one of the most infamous dynasties in world history, who will continue to fascinate us in decades to come. I absolutely loved how descriptive how Nathen Amin was. From start to finish, I was hooked."
"For those looking for a meticulous and detailed account of the lives and times of each of the Beaufort family members, this book provides exactly that."
"Nathen Amin’s passion for the Beauforts comes across in every page. His persuasive, perceptive arguments are all supported with ample evidence and explanation. Comprehensive and compelling, this is a book that should grace the shelves of any fan of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, of the royal Houses of Lancaster and York, and the Hundred Years War, or even for a simple lover of medieval history"
