Editorial Reviews

Review

2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist for General Fiction/Novel --2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards

From the Back Cover

"I can only reiterate my sense of this story being true. [Joan Szechtman has] created an intersection not only of past and present, but of fiction and nonfiction. I try not to take fiction, even historical fiction, as fact, but your work helps me to realize the extent to which 'the willing suspension of disbelief' contributes to the perpetuation of lies."--Carolivia Herron, author of Nappy Hair

"Beautifully written, this novel will be enjoyed not only by Ricardians, but by anyone who wants a change from routine historical fiction, and indeed those who prefer modern settings for their entertainment. Joan Szechtman is an exciting new talent, and I suspect she will soon have an army of admirers clamouring for the next book in the series."--Brian Wainwright, author of Within the Fetterlock

"Joan Szechtman spans the ages to bring us the historical Richard in a modern world. She has created a novel of history across time and character."--Peter Hancock, author of Richard III and the Murder in the Tower
What if instead of dying in battle on Bosworth Field over 500 years ago, King Richard III was whisked through time and space to the twenty-first century U.S.A? What would the last Medieval King become? How would he cope? What would he want from his new life?

This Time rediscovers the fifteenth Century Richard III through the travails he must endure as he attempts to unravel the mysteries of this century. Not only must Richard III acclimate himself to this whole new world--to sometimes comic effect--he must try to undo the damage done to his reputation through 500 years of history.

The novel creates an engaging intersection of past and present, fact and fiction to prove that Richard III, the real man, was not--and is not--deformed in body or in spirit.

Through her research, Joan Szechtman evokes a larger than life Richard. Not the misshapen evil character from Shakespeare, but a richly human Richard no longer fettered by history's faulty memory.  Richard III is here, in This Time.
