Publisher's Summary

History tells us that the intelligent, wealthy, and powerful Margaret of York had everything any woman could want, except for love. The acclaimed author of A Rose for the Crown takes us between the lines of history and into her heart.

It is 1461. Edward, son of Richard of York, ascends to the throne, and his willful sister, Margaret, immediately becomes a pawn in European politics as Edward negotiates her marriage. The young Margaret falls deeply in love with Anthony Woodville, the married brother of Edward's queen, Elizabeth. But Edward has arranged for his sister to wed Charles, son of the Duke of Burgundy, and soon Margaret is setting sail for her new life. Her official escort: Anthony Woodville.

Margaret of York eventually commanded the respect and admiration of much of Europe, but it appears to history that she had no emotional intimate. Anne Easter Smith's rare gift for storytelling and her extensive research reveal the love that burned at the center of Margaret's life, adding a new dimension to the story of one of the 15th century's most powerful women.

Daughter of York

Excellent Book. A York Family Tree was helpful during reading as the book does stay very close to history and the characters are very believable. The narration was perfect and you leave the book caring about these people as if you really knew them. Always a good result of a well written book.

Wonderful Book

A fabulous historical fiction story. Following the life of a young noble girl as she becomes princess and falls in love and is betrothed and married to another. A story with depth, character development, & inner plots of love, politics, & religion. All the things you shouldn't speak about at the dinner table weave themselves into this wonderful story.

York Outstanding

The story line flows like a novel. Kept my interest to the end. Especially enjoyed the scene descriptions. Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator.

Very engaging book

The second book in the trilogy is well told, interesting and a good listen but doesn't captivate like the first story. I liked it well enough and am looking forward to the third in the series

Excellent

Out of the dozens of books I have listened to on the various subjects of the kings and queens this was the first that had me in tears and lust . Fabulous I wished this was a series of books so I could continue the path.

Good, but slow

Very well researched and written, but very slow going. Don’t expect much action. Rosalyn Landon always gives a great performance.

incomplete

book ends implying Maragaret and Anthony would finally get together. that was not to be as when Edwatd IV died, Richard in pretense of protecting nephew who was with Anthony returning to London, had Anthony arrested and quickly executed. then nephews disappeared from the tower.
Margaret lived over 20 years after Anthony's execution, always a thorn in the side of Henry VII till her death, not many years before Henry's death.

Good story, overuse of a particular word

Very good story, but the writer overused the word "Certes" to a point of distraction. Halfway through the book, I was cringing every time the word "Certes" was said.

Confusing at times

I have read so many of these stories and when I find contradictions in the history I forget which book I’m reading. I love this author but this is not my favorite of her books. It’s worth reading for the setting and some good characters.
