Publisher's Summary

History tells us that the intelligent, wealthy, and powerful Margaret of York had everything any woman could want, except for love. The acclaimed author of A Rose for the Crown takes us between the lines of history and into her heart.

It is 1461. Edward, son of Richard of York, ascends to the throne, and his willful sister, Margaret, immediately becomes a pawn in European politics as Edward negotiates her marriage. The young Margaret falls deeply in love with Anthony Woodville, the married brother of Edward's queen, Elizabeth. But Edward has arranged for his sister to wed Charles, son of the Duke of Burgundy, and soon Margaret is setting sail for her new life. Her official escort: Anthony Woodville.

Margaret of York eventually commanded the respect and admiration of much of Europe, but it appears to history that she had no emotional intimate. Anne Easter Smith's rare gift for storytelling and her extensive research reveal the love that burned at the center of Margaret's life, adding a new dimension to the story of one of the 15th century's most powerful women.

    "Daughter of York"

    Excellent Book. A York Family Tree was helpful during reading as the book does stay very close to history and the characters are very believable. The narration was perfect and you leave the book caring about these people as if you really knew them. Always a good result of a well written book.

    "Wonderful Book"

    A fabulous historical fiction story. Following the life of a young noble girl as she becomes princess and falls in love and is betrothed and married to another. A story with depth, character development, & inner plots of love, politics, & religion. All the things you shouldn't speak about at the dinner table weave themselves into this wonderful story.

    "York Outstanding"

    The story line flows like a novel. Kept my interest to the end. Especially enjoyed the scene descriptions. Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator.

    "Very engaging book"

    The second book in the trilogy is well told, interesting and a good listen but doesn't captivate like the first story. I liked it well enough and am looking forward to the third in the series

    "Horribly disappointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is geared more to someone looking for a pure romance novel without regard to history.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another book by Margaret Atwood, I am hooked!


    What didn’t you like about Rosalyn Landor’s performance?

    She was unconvincing, but mostly because of the book's poor material.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am completely disapointed and bored with this book, cannot make it past first 2 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    The author portrays Margaret of York as a cat in heat oogling at every man she sees, from a courrier to the married Antony Woodville, brother of her (future) Sister-in-law, but fearing marriage. It makes her seem both rediculous and wanton at the same time. I am not buying it.
