Read in June, 2011

Without a doubt, any novel written by Anne Easter Smith will have the reader taking away with them a greater understanding of the time period in which the novel was set. Focusing on the beginning of the Wars of the Roses, Queen by Right gives us an in depth look into the lives of Ceciley Neville and Richard of York. Like all her novels, Queen by Right unfolds in panoramic detail, allowing the reader to experience a type of virtual history lesson, one that is gripping and completely satisfying. Often times, while reading such a historically intense novel, one might feel the story lacking or want to skim through certain sections in order to speed up the plot, but I am happy to say that this novel never left me feeling any of these desires....
