This book takes the reader into the life of the interesting, amusing, sometimes contradictory Jessica Mitford and her family. With splendid research and fine attention to detail the author has managed to make this book feel more like an afternoon spent sitting in an attic going through a trunk of old letters than a non-fiction read. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an entertaining and enlightening look into the life of Jessica Mitford, but I must caution that this book will open up new avenues of exploration, or at least it did for me.… (more)

This book will take the reader into an amazing time in English history in a gracious and comfortable writing style. The story is rich in fact and shared in such a manner that no scorecard is required to follow the characters who made this period such an interesting time in England's story. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in Richard III and those who shaped his life. It has set me on a journey into history that just continues to entertain and educate.

Another good novel about Richard III. Whitford's theory on the princes in the tower is that Richard had them taken from the tower to a safe place and then made arrangements for them to be taken to Burgundy prior to Bosworth. In this novel the story is narrated by a fictional friend and cousin of Richard's. Enjoyable characters, true to the events of the time. Aptly titled, since Richard was so cruelly betrayed by the Stanleys and Northumberland.
