Review by soliloquies
Enjoyable read about Henry VII's reign. Slightly repetitious at the beginning, but settles into a well written story.
Review by tina1969
I have set myself the challenge of reading some of my Tudor novels in order. I normally read from Henry VIII onwards but decided to start with this novel which is about Henry VII when he became king. I have recently read The White Queen by Philippa Gregory which was about Elizabeth Woodville so this book although it is by a different author continues the story.This book is full of historical facts ant touches a lot on the princes in the tower. I did feel however that the story was a little flat and at times I felt I was reading a factual book, rather than a novel. The book does however stick to the facts and is not like some historical novels where authors claim to have invented certain events for fictional purposes.Jean Plaidy is a brilliant author but due to the fact that this novel was slightly slow going and as I said a little flat I have only given it 4 stars. Would I recommend this book, yes I would.
