    1. This is the first novel by Rosemary Hawley Jarman that I've read. I will certainly be reading more. I recently read The King's Daughter by Sandra Worth and was fascinated by the story of "Perkin Warbeck" the so-called pretender to the throne of England who vexed Henry Tudor for eight years by claiming that he was Richard, Duke of York, the true claimant to the throne, son of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville, one of the princes in the tower. There aren't many books out there written about "Warbe [...]

    2. A good telling of another possible ending for the princes in the tower. The main character becomes one of Richard/Perkin Warbeck's main supporters. Most of the book is more about Nicholas, the fictional main character, but by the time I reached the end I realized I had a very human idea of Richard (who would've been the 4th). I'm an R3 fan so I realize I'm biased (not with the more popular Tudor bias, that is), but I found the idea of the prince's survival & rebellion at least as believable [...]

    3. This book fictionalizes the story of Richard, one of the two princes reportedly murdered by his uncle, Richard III. It's told through the eyes of one of the King's supposed men. It was a good story although I was a little frustrated to see how Nicholas (eventually a trusted follower of the "Richard IV" pretender) allowed others to choose his life. The book is satisfying for its finely woven details and interlaced plot lines right to the end.

    4. A compelling interpretation of Perkin Warbeck's story - or was he Richard, Duke of York? This is the sequel to the cult classic We Speak No Treason - a much loved novel about Richard III - but it's a fine book in its own right.
