I don't like to say bad things about books I know that authors work very hard to write things that people will like but I just have to say. I want my money back!

I found the characters syrupy, one dimensional and wholly unlikeable. I could have care less about Catherine Gordon, or Richard of York/Perkin Warbeck.

When I pick up a novel that wants me to suspend my beliefs and just try to imagine this might be true I want to be convinced. When I finish I want to think yes this sounds plausible. I have serious Yorkist leanings anyway, but this book served no purpose. It wasn't even a good love story. So I give it 1/2 star for good cover art.

Lady Catherine Gordon loves Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York. Richard, known in England as Perkin Warbeck comes to reclaim his rightful crown from Henry Tudor, accompanied by his beloved Catherine. Catherine believes Richard will succeed in his quest. Catherine keeps Richard close to her heart; remaining loyal. A jealous king, Henry VII, admires her beauty bringing unwanted affections, enmeshing her in a terrifying love triangle. Richard faces execution for treason. Catherine, alone in the Tudor Court, must find courage to shape her own destiny in a cruel monarch, yet winning the admiration of a nation. While Sandra Worth's tale is written from her perspective and gathering of information of what she believes happened; the book is well-written. A great read of European history.
