Publisher's Summary

As King Henry VI slips into insanity and the realm of England teeters on the brink of civil war, a child is married to the mad king's brother. Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond, takes his child bride into Wales, where she discovers a land of strife and strangers.
At Caldicot Castle and Lamphey Palace, Margaret must put aside childhood, acquire the dignity of a Countess, and, despite her tender years, produce Richmond with a son and heir.
While Edmund battles to restore the king's peace, Margaret quietly supports his quest; but it is a quest fraught with danger.
As the friction between York and Lancaster intensifies, 14-year-old Margaret, now widowed, turns for protection to her brother-in-law, Jasper Tudor. At his stronghold in Pembroke, two months after her husband's death, Margaret gives birth to a son whom she names Henry, after her cousin, the king.
Margaret is small of stature, but her tiny frame conceals a fierce and loyal heart and a determination that will not falter until her son's destiny as the king of England is secured.
The Beaufort Bride traces Margaret's early years from her nursery days at Bletsoe Castle to the birth of her only son in 1457 at Pembroke Castle. Her story continues in book two, The Beaufort Woman.

First part of a series

Margaret Beaufort recently caught my attention as the possible culprit behind much of the Tudor/ Plantagenet skullduggery. This introduction is a fascinating insight into her early life. I assume this will continue as the author creates the medieval world in which she lived and breathes life into her character, turning her from a name on a family tree to a flesh and blood woman. Can’t wait to find out about the events that made her the successful schemer and very dangerous woman I believe her to be.

Wonderful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to anyone, especially if they have an interest in Tudor history, Welsh history, War of the Roses etc.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Beaufort Bride?

There are many memorable moments throughout the book, however, for me, it's the birth of Henry VII.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The moment upon the ship, when warmth began to enter Edmund and Margaret's relationship,

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

OH gosh several.

Any additional comments?

This is a beautifully written story set in the turbulent time of the Wars of Roses. There is little written about Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII, grandmother of Henry VIII. There are historical facts of course, but little else. The author has, inventively and sensitively, written the story of her early life, from Margaret's point of view. There are some wonderful moments, harrowing moments, and some incredibly touching moments. I highly recommend this book. I hope there will be many more available from this author.
