I read the three volumes in this trilogy (or rather, listened to them) back to back and I am writing this little review after finishing all three-- and that's because this trilogy is a "could not put down" listen. I have read many historical novels set in the period of the so-called "Cousins' Wars" (AKA the Wars of the Roses) and before I began this trilogy I really doubted that anyone, and perhaps particularly a writer of historical fiction, could shed any new light on the events of this time. But Sandra Worth succeeds there, and also weaves a spell around these historical characters which makes all seem new again. As a passionate lover of historical fiction, I can recommend this entire trilogy as a great read !

What made the experience of listening to The Rose of York the most enjoyable?
I like a different version of the evil Richard III than Shakespeare.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the story about Anne and Richard but the middle of the story gets bogged down with Edward and Elizabeth Woodville.
What does Robin Sachs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Anyone reading the book for me lets me do my housework while listening.
Who was the most memorable character of The Rose of York and why?
Richard III because his story is so different from the evil version of Shakespeare's. I love learning about his devotion to Anne and his brother the King. I also thought the part about Warwick's brother and his wife was quite interesting.
Any additional comments?
I will probably read more of the books by Ms. Worth, but am not really sure.
