To the Tower Born A Novel of the Lost Princes Free download Î 100 Essie daughter of the King of England sister to the little princes and founding ancestress of the Tudor dynastyWith great bravery and heart the two friends navigate this dark and dangerous medieval landscape in which the king's death sets off a battle among the most scheming ambitious and murderous men and women of their age who will stop at nothing to possess the throne of England. It took me almost two months to read this book It was just silly It was very predictable and at times over dramatic The story did put a nice spin on the disappearance of the two princes But I think it could have been written better

To the Tower Born A Novel of the Lost Princes Free download Î 100 The author of the highly praised The Wild Irish is back with a mesmerizing novel that probes one of the most intriguing unsolved mysteries in history what happened to the lost princes of YorkDebated for than five centuries the disappearance of the young princes Edward and Richard from the Tower of London in 1483 has stirred the imaginations of numerous writers from Shakespeare to J. It is very unlikely that I would have bought this book had it not been available in a Kindle edition The combination of low price and convenience led me to take the chance and so I have read it The most positive thing I can find to say is that it is at least not one of those dreadful historical bodice ripping romances Aside from that I found nothing of value or revelation in these pagesPart of the problem I think is that I am currently immersed in historical and biographical fact and have little patience with easily corrected errors Ms Maxwell simply did not do her homework Her research seems to have consisted of a uick glance at one of her old schoolbooks I uickly lost count of the obviously incorrect statements she made although one continually occurring error was particularly annoying She kept using Majesty as a title for the Plantagenet royalty who were content with a simple Your Grace as their address It was the jumped up insecure Tudors who insisted on being called Your Majesty There are any number of other tone deaf usages in the story Even in her Author s Note there is evidence of unseemly haste she completely misunderstood Tey s point in The Daughter of Time To a Ricardian there is hardly any greater sinShe did resist the impulse to make Richard a black hearted villain even though she made him a weak whinging easily led idiot And she did accurately depict Buckingham as Richard s bad angel Her solution to the fate of the sons of Edward IV is unusual but hardly convincing There is no feel for the fifteenth century here and no explanation for most of the leaps of logic she makes Why was Edward V so attached to his uncle Clarence What was the truth of the execution of Hastings Was it done in a rush or a week after his arrest Was Stillington a frail frightened priest concerned for his soul and the good of England or a sturdy plotter in his own right Did Margaret of Burgundy really dislike her brother Richard Where is the evidence Indeed this is a girls adventure story and is totally unworthy to be shelved with historical novels It will do to pass an idle afternoon it is an easy read But it is a shabby attempt to explain the mystery supposedly at the heart of her story It is as shabby as Henry VII and as dishonest
