I simply loved all three volumes of Sandra Worth's trilogy, of which this is the second. Being a great reader of historical fiction, I am not easy to please at this point. However I found Sandra Worth's account of Richard III, the workings of his heart and mind, all the terrible pressures to which he was subjected by a political climate of constant intrigue and betrayal, and the decisions he made in the face of those pressures, to make a riveting listen, particularly as narrated by Robin Sachs. I will certainly never look at Richard III the same way again-- and having finished the trilogy I am somewhat stunned to find that in fact I feel as if during all the hours of listening to these three books, I actually lived through the 1470's and 1480's with Richard and Anne. Bottom line: Sandra Worth is a marvelous writer, Robin Sachs is a terrific narrator, and the entire trilogy is a wonderful listen !

Even though I don't subscribe to the attitude of "Woodvilles=evil", just as with Richard, I believe the truth lies in the middle ground somewhere, I have found this series to be entertaining and well written. It moves quickly enough to keep my attention, and that's what I want in a book. Mr. Sachs does a wonderful job of narration. I've started on the final Book and can't wait to see how the princes in the Tower and Richard's alleged affair with Elizabeth of York is handled.
