    WONDERFUL HISTORICAL EPIC TALE OF LOVE AND HONOR!

    THE ROSE OF YORK: FALL FROM GRACE by Sandra Worth is a wonderful, although very sad historical fiction set in 1483-1485 England. This is the third in The Rose of York, but can be read as a stand alone.The other two in the series are Book One is Love & War, Book Two is Crown of Destiny. It is well researched, well written with depth and detail. It is the story of King Richard III's short reign as king. It brings to life his reluctance to be King and his tragic, although heroic death. It has passion, lust, greed, betrayal, romance, murder,tragedy,intrigue,and loss. It is a sad but romantic tale full of history, heroic detail and brings a possible explanation of the disappearance of his two nephews (King Edward IV son's).For which King Richard was blamed. The debate continues as to rather one of the son's survived or not.This is an epic story of true love and honor during the Wars of Roses in England. I would highly recommend this book especially if you enjoy history, true honor and love. This is a keeper and will leave the reader amazed.
    This book was received for review from the author and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and End Table Books.

    History Worth Reading!

    This engrossing novel about Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England, is the third in Sandra Worth's Rose of York series. It is a sad but romantic story, for it details Richard's tragic kingship, the loss of his wife and son and his final defeat by Henry Tudor at the battle of Bosworth field. But it is a heroic and romantic tale as well, for it chronicles Richard's lifelong love affair with his wife Anne Neville and notes the may accomplishments of Richard's short reign. Finally, without giving away the story, it provides a convincing explanation for the mystery of the disappearance of the two sons of King Edward IV, whom Richard has long been accused of murdering. Those who appreciate accurate historical writing will enjoy this entire series.

    A good read

    If you have already read the first two its imperative you finish the series. Its the final last chapter and a sad one as well for York dynasty. King Richard is one of the most complex kings in English history, on one side so good and on the other you can't help but think, could he have been so evil? Read it and decide for yourself.
