    An original, alternative view of Alice Perrers, Mistress of King Edward III

    Ms. Emma Campion's book "The King's Mistress" challenges traditional negative thinking about Alice Perrers. Traditionally, scholars have asserted that Alice was manipulative and greedy, whereas this book paints a very different picture. Campion provides an alternative view as to how Alice became the King's mistress and endured, both politically and personally. I could hardly wait to learn the fate of Alice and whether she survived years of ruthless political intrigues and royal power plays. I loved this well written book and felt it was an excellent use of rich historical facts, enlivened by an intriguing plot.

    King's Mistress - Great

    This book holds your attention. While it is a novel, it gives some insight into the era surrounding those times. I was happy to forward it to a friend to read. I am sure she will enjoy it as much as I di.

    LOVED IT!

    FINALLY! I've been wanting to read a book that is addictive and here it is. I haven't read a book in a really long time that I didn't want to put down- that I was excited to read when I got home from work. Alice is a great main character. I liked that there weren't so many different names and titles that it got confusing to keep track of. Alice was a relate-able main character and I wasn't disappointed in the ending. It did kind of "skim over" some big chunks of time but I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything; that period of time was just uneventful and would have been a waste anyway. I am a HUGE historical fiction fan and this ranks right up there among my favorites.
