I love English history historical fiction books and have read many of them-I really enjoy Queen Elizabeth the first's period and was pleasantly surprised to read about the Neville's. Great writing-kept me turning the pages late into the night. I have since ordered her second book through Amazon and can't wait to read it!

Lady of the Roses is the story of Isabel Ingoldsthorpe who was married to John Neville, brother of Warwick "The Kingmaker".

While I am by no means an expert in British History, from what I know, this account of this chapter of the Wars of the Roses is historically accurate.

But to me this was a trite and predictable love story with a little murder, mayhem and political intrigue thrown in. In my mental bookstore this goes in Young Adult Historical Romance.

This is a great book about a couple on opposing sides of the War of the Roses, but still they found love. Highly reommend!
