Excellent Narration, Flowery Story
I enjoyed the book very much. I have been interested in Richard III since his grave was discovered in 2014. Although I suspect the portrayal of Richard III may be far too soft and flowery, the book is entertaining and I will read another on the same topic.
The death of Galahad in the stormy sea.
John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu
I was touched by John Neville's letter to his wife, written just before he died. It made me think of warriors, of any culture, having tender feelings for the women who wait for them to return.
I don't know if Richard III was as saintly as the character Sandra Worth has created in this book. Maybe he was! Or, maybe the real Richard was more like the villain portrayed by Shakespeare and other writers. At this point in time, it is unlikely we will ever know.
I am an American with just a light knowledge of the history of England. When I read books like those in the Rose of York series, I always find myself Googling the characters to learn more. I did find it very interesting to look up characters such as the Nevilles, the Warwicks, etc.
