A¬†glorious novel of the controversial Richard III---a
monarch betrayed in life by his allies and betrayed in death
In this beautifully rendered modern classic, Sharon Kay
Penman redeems Richard III---vilified as the bitter,
twisted, scheming¬†hunchback who murdered his nephews, the
princes in the Tower---from his maligned¬†place in history
with a¬†dazzling combination of research and
storytelling.¬†Born into¬†the treacherous courts of
fifteenth-century¬†England, in the midst of what history has
called The War of the Roses, Richard was raised in the
shadow of his charismatic brother, King Edward IV. Loyal to
his friends and passionately in love with the one woman who
was denied him, Richard emerges as a gifted man far more
sinned against than sinning.¬†
This magnificent retelling of his life is filled with all of
the sights and sounds of battle, the customs and lore of the
fifteenth century, the rigors of court politics, and the
passions and prejudices of royalty.
