I have always thought Margaret Beaufort warranted an historical novel, her life cannot have been easy, she lived through some pretty interesting times and survived and saw her son become king . But I have to say that in this novel she is a most unlikeable character, rather whiney and clueless, my sympathies were not with her. There are in fact few likeable characters in this novel at all, none with much depth. Most of the players do not even get onto the stage, instead there is a lot of her bemoaning her fate. I did listen to the whole thing, and the narration was ok, but this is not what I had hoped.
