Editorial Reviews

Review

Waldron certainly knows her history, and the details of this book ring true to the time period and the famous historical personages involved. Yet despite its accuracy for setting, Roan Rose is ultimately a book about character. Rose and Anne and Richard are all fully formed people with their virtues and faults, their moments of great kindness and integrity, and their selfish concerns and failings. Rose walks a difficult line between friend and servant. She is often Anne's closest confidant - and is more than once Richard's lover - but both Anne and Richard do not hesitate to put her in her place when it suits their purposes. ... Rose refuses to bow down in servitude, and her spirit is not broken ... Her heart belongs to the two people who always stand above her, who will never view her as their equal, yet who can never bear to part with her company for long. When they call for her, she comes - turning her back on her own family for the sake of her beloved Anne and a great king whose tragic end we already know.
--Dianne Salerni, "We Hear the Dead," "The Caged Graves."

From the Author

I've owed the last of the Plantagenet kings a book since I first read "The Daughter of Time" back in the '50's. I'd been imagining Dickon and Anne for a lifetime when I finally felt I had the skill and the historical background to begin writing my version of this long pondered story. Rose came to me then, to offer her "downstairs" view,  one which is rather different from that of the great lady she loved and loyally served.
