Description
All that history knows of Grace Plantagenet is that she was an illegitimate daughter of Edward IV and one of two attendants aboard the funeral barge of his widowed queen. Thus, she was half sister of the famous young princes, who–when this story begins in 1485–had been housed in the Tower by their uncle, Richard III, and are presumed dead. But in the 1490s, a young man appears at the courts of Europe claiming to be Richard, duke of York, the younger of the boys, and seeking to claim his rightful throne from England's first Tudor king, Henry VII. But is this man who he says he is? Or is he Perkin Warbeck, a puppet of Margaret of York, duchess of Burgundy, who is determined to regain the crown for her York family? Grace Plantagenet finds herself in the midst of one of English history's greatest mysteries. If she can discover the fate of the princes and the true identity of Perkin Warbeck, perhaps she will find her own place in her family.From the Compact Disc edition.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Grace Plantagenet, illegitimate daughter of King Edward IV, leads a quiet life until a mysterious stranger arrives, claiming to be the rightful heir to the English crown. If that's true, he would also be Grace's long-lost half-brother, Richard, who has been presumed dead. Thus, a convoluted storyline of politics and intrigue ensues. Narrator Rosalyn Landor's dispassionate performance is as uninspired as this novel. Without a clear plot or much distinction between character voices, the story fails to come to life, and the listener cannot engage with the narration. However, diehard fans of Tudor historical fiction may find a pre-Henry VIII story refreshing. Further, those with knowledge of the period, characters, and relationship dynamics may also find Landor's narration more than adequate. A.R.H. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

        December 8, 2008
        Smith's newest historical fiction (after Daughter of York
        ) is a complex exploration of a turbulent period of English history, taking on one of its biggest mysteries: the fate of princes Edward and Richard, locked up in the Tower by Richard III. Protagonist Grace Plantagenet is the illegitimate daughter of Edward IV and had been confidant to his family—including her imprisoned half-brothers Edward and Richard. After Richard III is killed and the princes disappear, a man named Perkin Warbeck appears to challenge Henry VII, claiming to be the presumed dead Prince Richard. Determined to discover the truth of Warbeck's claim, Grace throws herself into the politics of the court, knowing that if Warbeck is Prince Richard, it could be drastic for Grace's family—especially for her half-sister Elizabeth of York, now Henry's queen. Examined through the eyes of a minor historical figure, Smith introduces readers to 15th-century political intrigue with thought, courage and honesty. Though her major historical figures (especially Henry VII) get the broad-brush treatment, Smith is careful to make Grace and her world detailed and engaging.
