The twin of a prince, but with no royal kin;
A witness to murder, though no blood was shed;
She once saved two kings, through both courage and fear,
And one still lives on, but the other is dead.
Who is she?


Set in the midst of the War of the Roses, this new middle grade title by Diane Zahler has a classic feel with a fresh twist. Like the classic 'The Door In the Wall,' there is royal intrigue, illness, and a young person finding their way. The narrative gives us glimpses into many aspects of late 1

I bought this book based on the subject matter alone. The story of the princes locked in the tower has always fascinated me - such a tragic and terrifying piece of history. DAUGHTER OF THE WHITE ROSE had me captivated from the first page to the last. Rich with historical detail without sacrificing story or character, I absolutely loved it.

Spirited MG RE-telling of the mysterious disappearance of the two princes when Richard the III ascended the throne. Wonderfully written and a page-turner!
