** spoiler alert ** While I found Figures in Silk to be a good read, I cannot say there was anything particularly bad or amazing about the novel. This novel centered itself around the character of Isabel Claver, a fictional sister of King Edward IV's mistress Jane Shore. While Isabel, who finds her vocation in the London silk industry, is an interesting character, I found her affair with Richard of Gloucester to be a bit contrived. However, I must give credit to the author for not attempt to completely whitewash Richard's character, as often happens in fiction set in this period.
