After reading several books about the Tudors, I thought I should know about the Plantagenets, thus this book. The War of the Roses was being waged and Edward of York and his bride, Elizabeth Woodville took the throne. Edward and Elizabeth were married in secret, with the marriage finally being annulled by Edward's brother, Richard, who took the crown for himself. The story is told by Elizabeth, whose two young sons were captured by Richard, and mysteriously disappeared. Enjoyed the book and learned some history, as well.
