From the Publisher

Defying Shakespeare’s portrayal of Richard III, this well researched novel completes The Rose of York series — winner of a remarkable ten awards, including first place pre-publication prize in the 2003 Francis Ford Coppola-supported New Century Writers Award for Best Emerging Writer. Set in Malory’s England, it traces Richard’s remarkable reign, his passion for justice, his undying devotion to Anne, and the unresolved mystery of his nephew’s disappearance. A stirring saga of courage, sacrifice and love.

MY THOUGHTS:

THE ROSE OF YORK: FALL FROM GRACE by Sandra Worth is a wonderful, although very sad historical fiction set in 1483-1485 England. This is the third in The Rose of York, but can be read as a stand alone.The other two in the series are Book One is Love & War, Book Two is Crown of Destiny. It is well researched, well written with depth and detail. It is the story of King Richard III’s short reign as king. It brings to life his reluctance to be King and his tragic, although heroic death. It has passion, lust, greed, betrayal, romance, murder,tragedy,intrigue,and loss. It is a sad but romantic tale full of history, heroic detail and brings a possible explanation of the disappearance of his two nephews (King Edward IV son’s).For which King Richard was blamed. The debate continues as to rather one of the son’s survived or not.This is an epic story of true love and honor during the Wars of Roses in England. I would highly recommend this book especially if you enjoy history, true honor and love. This is a keeper and will leave the reader amazed. This book was received for review from the author and details can be found at  End Table Books.
