This was such an enjoyable book, I quickly went back and found one that I had not read ( The Tudor Bride) and purchased that one right away. I had not read a lot about Jasper Tudor although he does seem to have had two daughters. It is a different way of looking at Margaret Beaufort also- sort of with narrowed eyes. His life with Jane ( who surely existed in some fashion) was one of legend as was his birth to an anointed queen. His devotion to his nephew Henry VII was also legendary but possibly NOT how much he taught and protected him. Reading about the intersection and egress between England and Wales was quite fascinating in this book. The clash of cultures helps us to understand this particular period. Recommendef for this reason, as well as explaining how the Tudor kings came to exist. A 5th book, The Tudor Crown will be published next May and I cannot wait to receive that one.

Each of Joanna Hickson's successive books have been better than the one prior. This novel centered around Jasper Tudor was better than just good; it was excellent. There is another Tudor book in the works and I can hardly wait.

A fairly fast read. I live the way every chapter is from I different characters point of view
