5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen is Thwarted but not the reader!, January 28, 2012
This review is from: THWARTED QUEEN (Kindle Edition)
THWARTED QUEENThe Thwarted Queen is that wonderful combination of historical accuracy and a story that sweeps you away into the 15th century world of lords and ladies, royal intrigue, deep-seated passions and women as the power behind their husbands. Follow Cecylee Neville from her childhood to her death in 1495 at the age of 80; meet her enamoured husband, his dim-witted cousin, his dashing playboy heir, the spy from Rouen and the little princes whose fate has been one of the enduring mysteries of English History. Cynthia Sally Haggard has not only researched in a broad range of written material about the period, but some written material OF the period. Perhaps it was her visit to the ruins of Raby Castle that brought Cecylee Neville, the Rose of Raby, to life for her, but it is her pen that brings this controversial and strong-willed queen to life for us. Haggard starts her story when Cecylee is nine years old and about to be betrothed to Richard, Duke of York, who is fourteen. For those who don't know, Richard of York and Henry of Lancaster are the two men who lead in the Wars of the Roses. Haggard mixes history and passion, romance and dynastic struggles to create an entrancing story that is hard to put down. So, settle in somewhere comfortable, and be glad that a Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-FiKindle can go just about anywhere!
