I thoroughly enjoyed this and plan to read the two previous novels, A Rose for the Crown and Daughter of York. Okay, we know I'm an English history freak, particularly the Plantagenet/Tudor eras, so these novels are right up my alley. I met this author at a book signing when this came out and was impressed by her research and knowledge of the period. And she's a member of the Richard III Society so we have similar views on many of the historical figures involved. I read this book - it's a long one - in two days when I was sick earlier this week. I got the same immersion in the period and feeling for the characters that I got from Anya Seton's classic novel "Katherine". If you like good historical fiction, I recommend this. Interestingly, several people in the Richard III Goodreads group liked this one the least of Anne Easter Smith's novels, so I'm very much looking forward to the other two.
