I wonder how I lived without Google, and I know the younger generation has no clue what life was like without this amazing company. This book goes inside the company and talks about the culture from the viewpoint of one of its early employees.

Heiress to the red rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort never surrenders her belief that her house is the true ruler of England and that she has a great destiny before her. Her ambitions are disappointed when her sainted cousin Henry VI fails to recognize her as a kindred spirit, and she is even more dismayed when he sinks into madness.

Slow listen

Unsympathetic lead makes this a slow listen. I really can't recommend it. I have liked other books by the author.
