The Plain of Redemore, 22nd August 1485
Richard III – betrayed and defeated!
His gaze sweeps over the bloody carnage surrounding him. A cry goes up: “We have found the king!” He sees Henry Tudor standing triumphant over a mauled and battered corpse and hears him whisper, “It is done. England is mine.”
How can this be, when he is not dead?
With the help of his celestial mentor Father Gilbert, a Franciscan monk, Richard will learn that malign Tudor propaganda has not reigned supreme and that history did not entirely paint him as the child-killer king.
Will he grasp the chance of renaissance and exit the spiritual purgatory that has held him hostage for more than half a millennium?

I had no idea how it would all come together and work out but all I can say is well done! Thank you, I know this is a book I will read again and again.
In her final chapters, Skidmore transports the reader into the moment in a way I have rarely experienced. Richard grabbed my emotions and wrung them out as I stood with him at the reinterment. An incredibly thought provoking chapter that is a must read for any interested in this era.

It is a neatly compiled reassessment of the major questions around his life, set in the clever framework of his own recollections in the afterlife. This enables the reader to be taken to important key events without laboriously dwelling on minor details. Well researched and written in an engaging style, the reader is captivated and taken with Richard on his journey through the afterlife as he tries to come to terms with the legacy of the Tudor propaganda machine. The author presents very valid and believable scenarios for Richard's actions which fit the historical accounts of his character and behaviour, as well as a very satisfying conclusion to the tormented King's afterlife.
History's biggest murder mystery is given a very plausible explanation, whilst making the reader appreciate the man behind the crown.
It raises many questions in one's mind about history, how it is written and portrayed whilst a further deeper question is raised about how a soul might deal with the besmirching of his name after death, when there is no-one left to defend it, or if they do, their lives will be under threat.
An excellent read which I would highly recommend.
The author made a intriguing an interesting decision to follow Richard into the afterlife from here the reader gets to see events from Richards life in a number of flashback's. We also get to see the struggles he might have gone through while coming trying to terms the decisions he made and the consequences they had. We also get to see him struggle with the reputation he gained and after his death due to Henry Tudor.
I'm no expert on Richard 111 but from what I do know I can say the historical details are accurate and it is clear that a lot of research has been done.
Well done to the author an excellent novel I was hooked from the first page and was sorry to see it come to end.
