    Confined to a hospital bed, Scotland Yard's Inspector Alan Grant is bored. To divert his attention from his pain, a friend brings him pictures of faces. He becomes engrossed with the portrait of Richard III. How is it possible that such a sensitive-appearing soul could have been portrayed as the odious villain, the Wicked Uncle of history, responsible for the murder of his young nephews, heirs to the British throne, in order to secure the line of succession for himself?

    Sheila says: "very interesting"
    "One of the first historical novels"

    If you could sum up The Daughter of Time in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent, well written. I first came across this over 25 years ago and while I've listened to hundreds of books since then, I still enjoyed this one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Richard III came off poorly in Shakespear's version of his life and this opened my eyes to a much different man who might have very well been a good king had he had more time.


    What about Derek Jacobi???s performance did you like?

    Everything by this first class performer is worth listening to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You'll want to savor this because it ends all too soon.
