I was a little intimidated beginning this historical fiction novel, because I know that the characters can be hard to keep straight, and the geography can be confusing. Once I got started, though, even though I did have to work at keeping track of who was who, I got hooked! Grace Plantagenet, the central character, was absolutely delightful and fascinating. The illegitimate daughter of Edward IV in 1485, she was loved and trusted by almost everyone who knew her. This explains why she was entrusted with so many secrets, and why she worked so hard to protect the people she loved. Caught up in an amazing mystery surrounding her family, she risks much to find the truth, and that mystery unfolds in a masterfully told tale!
