One woman holds the key to England's most glorious empire in this intimate retelling of the launch of the Tudor dynasty

A magnificent portrait of Elizabeth of York, set against the dramatic background of fifteenth century England. Elizabeth, the only living descendant of Edward IV, has the most valuable possession in all of England-a legitimate claim to the crown. Two princes battle to win Britain's most rightful heiress for a bride and her kingdom for his own. On one side is her uncle Richard, the last Plantagenet King, whom she fears is the murderer of her two brothers, the would-be kings. On the other side is Henry Tudor, the exiled knight. Can he save her from a horrifying marriage to a cut-throat soldier?

Thrust into the intrigue and drama of the War of the Roses, Elizabeth has a country within her grasp-if she can find the strength to unite a kingdom torn apart by a thirst for power. A richly drawn tale of the woman who launched one of the most dramatic dynasties England has ever seen, The Tudor Rose is a vibrant, imaginative look at the power of a queen.

Enjoyable limited look into the life of a queen behind the scenes. Sort of left feeling life was not valued except for its value.

Tudor Rose
April 25th, 2014
This book explores the troubled times of the last years of the War of the Roses and the transfer of power to the Tudors. It sets the scene for the great upheavals o the Reformation and the Tudor obsession about succession. It provides interesting insights into what Elizabeth of York may have been like. I found the discussion about the dualistic natures of both Richard and Henry very interesting as well is the segment on Warbeck.
