Book Review: The Queen of Last Hopes by Susan Higginbotham

Book Description

 January 1, 2011
A man other than my husband sits on England's throne today.

What would happen if this king suddenly went mad? What would his queen do? Would she make the same mistakes I did, or would she learn from mine?

Margaret of Anjou, queen of England, cannot give up on her husband-even when he slips into insanity. And as mother to the House of Lancaster's last hope, she cannot give up on her son-even when England turns against them. This gripping tale of a queen forced to stand strong in the face of overwhelming odds is at its heart a tender tale of love.

Award-winning author Susan Higginbotham will once again ask readers to question everything they know about right and wrong, compassion and hope, duty to one's country and the desire of one's own heart.

Review: This was a nice book to read taken from a different point of view. So often War of the Roses is just from one perspective. One of the things I enjoyed most was the chapters that also included other points of view, in first person. It added a nice touch to the story.

For those that enjoy character listings, this book has one of the best I've seen. So, this is the perfect book for old "followers" of War of the Roses as well as those who are brand new to it.
This was a well-researched book {as many of you know--one of my favorite points, I truly dislike historical inaccuracies} that was well written. I enjoyed the opportunity to get to think about other characters in a way I hadn't thought of before. This was a book I found difficult to put down and a wonderful addition to any book shelf.
