Yet another 'mistress' of Richard III; this time it is proposed that the lady in question was Anne Harrington, whose family was helped against the Stanleys by the young Duke of Gloucester. A little slow to start, it really hit its stride half way and enjoyed it. However, one event near the end (I won't reveal what as it would be a spoiler) did stretch my credulity a little bit. Still, well written.

A very good read, pure escapism! Also she manages to stick to the historical facts while weaving a really good story around them

Unfortunately this book was obviously rushed out before the conclusion of the tests carried out on the remains of Richard III. Up until the final few pages it was a good read but then it all went wrong.

Easy to read and enjoyable, but lacks depth.

As a native of Lancaster I was immediately intrigued by the squabbles over property between the Stanleys and the Harringtons over Hornby Castle and estates. We know from the Paston Letters that the 'Wars of the Roses' had strong implications for local disputes over property as people aligned themselves with one side or the other depending on who they thought would do their families most good. This novel begins with the young Richard of Gloucester supporting the Harrington claims over the Stanleys and being induced to form a liaison with the daughter of the house which produced Richard's two acknowledged bastard children. Although Richard was unsuccessful In persuading his brother Edward to back the family against the Stanleys, the story, if true, provides another motive for Stanley distrust of and disloyalty to Richard as King. Of course no-one knows the identity of Richard's mistress but this theory does at least have more going for it than most I have heard.

Good read and an interesting perspective. Nice to hear about a famous person through the eyes if someone not so famous.
