Overview

In a real historical Game of Thrones, a disgruntled younger son, Eddie De-la-Pole, sardonic and bisexual, dominated by his Beloved Mother, nurtures a bromance with the brother of the Yorkist queen. But the vain queen separates them. How will Eddie choose between his beloved friend and the rising, sinister star of the dynastic firmament, Richard, Duke of Gloucester? And who is the mysterious Catalan rabbi, who hangs around the English court, and eventually has a powerful influence over Eddie's life?

Read and enjoy At the Court of Broken Dreams - a tale of love and war in the Middle Ages - to learn the answers to these and other fascinating questions.

"Inhabits the past as convincingly as Hilary Mantel" - Jane Spiro, Professor of Education, Oxford Brookes University.

"The author packs a lot of fun and flavour into this historical fiction, including [the narrator] Eddie's take on Richard's role in the 'Princes in the Tower' mystery...Overall, this book offers a wonderfully complex narrator's perspective on a head-spinning time in history...An intriguing, richly detailed, fictionalized 'eyewitness account' of the Wars of the Roses era." - (Kirkus Reviews)

"Laurence Baillie Brown's rendition...is truly unique and fresh....This telling is packed full of De-la-Pole's passion-filled words and his character blazes to life...The narrative is rich, full of historical research, enlightening conversations, engaging scenes (such as the tournament), and De-la-Pole's character comes across as likable, intelligent, savvy, and with a gift of telling a story...truly brilliant." - From the detailed review by The Historical Fiction Company, who also gave it 5 stars and their Highly Recommended medal.
