on 2 October 2013
The fifth in the cousins war series.This book concentrates on Princess Elizabeth, daughter of Elizabeth Woodville(the White Queen) and Edward IV and sister of the princes in the tower.She is a young woman caught between her own mother's rebellious ambitions and her domineering mother- in- law, mother of Henry VII. It is essential for Princess Elizabeth to bear children for the Tudor dynasty and unite the white rose of York with the red rose of Lancaster. Henry brutally makes sure of a pregnancy as soon as their betrothal is arranged.Elizabeth loathes him for killing her beloved uncle, Richard III( remains dug up in Leicester car park very recently)with whom she had been having an affair.
The tensions between the main characters are maintained by the possibility that one of Elizabeth's missing, presumed murdered brothers, survived under the guise of Perkin Warbeck. This claim became a threat to Henry VII, dividing loyalties and challenging Elizabeth's husband's and childrens' right to inherit the throne of England.
Enjoy this book for what it is,an entertaining romp through history, there are times when it is acceptable to be more interesting than accurate.There is a good bibliography at the end of the book for those who want more to read more scholarly views on the historical accuracy.j
