Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Expounding an historical epic of honor and love during the time of the Wars of the Roses, The Rose of York: Love & War is both dramatic and evocative in its portrayal of struggling souls making the best choices they can in an unjust world. A deftly written, reader engaging, thoroughly entertaining and enthusiastically recommended historical novel which documents its author as a gifted literary talent.
The RT Book Reviews Magazine
A Romantic Times TOP PICK!
The historical detail is marvelous. Worth's depiction of the troubled times, uncertainty of life and the portrayal of historical figures as multidimensional people with good intentions, bad decisions, greed, jealousy and goodness of heart will leave you wanting the next book immediately.

    A reviewer

    This book is a pale imitation of 'The Sunne in Splendour' by Sharon Kay Penman. It appears to be the exact same story, right down to the characters imagined emotions, but nowhere near as well written. The charactes are rather flat in comparison, and the novel is riddled with historical errors. If you are interested in reading a novel about The War of the Roses, try the original of this novel, 'The Sunne in Splendour'.

    Loyalty Binds Me

    Sandra Worth¿s book ¿The Rose of York: Love and War¿ is a tale of faith driven by loyalty. The story is about Richard III along with his best friend and confident Anne. The reader experiences their growth from childhood to adulthood, and grows along with them, in their understanding of life before democracy and their appreciation for Richard¿s faith in fairness for all. This story is similar to a timeline of Richard¿s and Anne¿s interactions. For their lives cross over into each other¿s constantly and with each separation their love for each other grows. Within this timeline the reader gets to know Richard¿s brothers, their wives, their associates and their enemies, each showing their true colors, through out many hardship¿s and celebrations. <BR/>I was fascinated with this book and the wealth of information I learned astounds me. This book reads as a love story, yet I feel as though I have just finished a History class. Sandra has an amazing talent of weaving historical facts with fiction, resulting into a book I did not want to put down. I would recommend this book, to anyone who would like to learn more about Richard III and what his life was like before he became King. The insanity that was dealt with during this timeframe resulted in unequal terms for all, battles, jealousy, love and loyalty. A great read!

    Lack of intrigue

    This book though well researched did not capture my attention. I read quite a lot and this book had me questioning if it was worth finishing. Any one who knows the war of the roses, knows what to expect. As for that the book delivered. I love to read about Richard III in a positive light. As for enjoying the read, I can't say that I did. It was very slow, and some of the characters fell flat. Richard III is portrayed as a good man, but he does not feel like a fully developed character. You almost find him boring.
    If you are looking for a book about Richard III plus a good story, (perhaps not as accurate as this book) I would highly recommend Rose for a Crown by Anne Easter Smith.

    Too bad

    Very disappointed to get 150 pages into this book and have multiple missing pages... I would like to keep reading, but how much am I missing?

    Historical Fiction Lover

    It was a very well researched book, but I thought that some of the characters could have been more developed. Overall it was good, just not as good as other books I have read.

    The New Jean Plaidy

    Thoroughly researched and beautifully written - historical fiction has a shining new star in Worth. She has the unique ability to draw the reader into the life and times of Richard III and to make one feel that the reader is actually there. She combines the best of Jean Plaidy and Anya Seton in her mesmerizing tale of the unfairly maligned Richard. I cannot wait for her next book. Worth is exceptionally gifted writer and IMO destined to be a major star in this genre. I urge everyone to read it. You will be delighted and amazed by her artful and graceful writing style.

    I learned a lot

    I loved this book! I didn't know anything about the Wars of the Roses, but wanted to know more about Richard III after I read Josephine Tey. This book provides a tremendous amount of history in a gripping page turner fashion. I felt like I was reading The Da Vinci Code, but this had a better ending and was based on actual historical fact!
