This one wasn't on par with the other books in the Abbott history series. A good bit of the material in it was already covered more thoroughly in the volume on Richard III. However, as far as getting a personal picture of the crafty Margaret of Anjou, it does the job. I went back and forth from being disgusted by Margaret on account of her cruelty and viciousness to feeling sympathy for her on account of the cruelty and viciousness of her enemies. Truly a brutal period in the history of England.

Also I loved the story about Lady Neville, even though it's entirely fictional.
