Has anybody read anything by Posie Graeme-Evans? She wrote The Innocent, The Exiled, and The Uncrowned Queen. It's a trilogy about a peasant girl (Anne) and Edward IV.

For those who have read them - are they any good? Amazon classifies it as historial fiction, which is what I'm looking for. On another website someone made the comment "If you are a fan of Philippa Gregory you will enjoy this book." That makes me want to read it. I just to make sure that it is not a "bodice ripper". Thanks

It's been a while since I read them, but I don't remember it being a 'bodice ripper' (any more than one would consider PG's books to be bodice rippers.)  I believe there were some sex scenes, but they weren't over the top. I  remember the 1st book in the series was my least favorite and I was glad I read the second book.   The first book didn't leave me wanting more.  I got mine in the UK several years ago -- I think they were released there before they were in the USA.

I've read the first two and thought they were just OK.

I read them earlier this year (I bought the third one before I realized it was a trilogy)  I was less than impressed, I was really excited to read them, but didn't find them as lovely as I expected them to be.
