Read full description of the books:
It took me a while to finish this book, unable to focus on the story because of the monstrous summer heat we’re having (it feels like our country is placed right next to planet Mercury at the moment—it’s soooo hot in here!) and because it is unnerving to read again the events from the Wars of the Roses that culminated in King Richard III’s death. Here, a man-at-arms narrates his story and describes in a detailed fashion how he has come to know and admire King Richard for his loyalty, bravery and fairness. He has followed Richard to his exile and battles, and even when all is lost after Bosworth Field, remained a loyal king's man. The Maiden also makes a momentous comeback in this book, continuing her tale of her great love for the king and relating how dearly she has paid for that love.
This book isn’t heavy in volume, but I find it quite heavy on the heart. I’m not sure if this mawkishness has something to do with me getting older, or the fact that I’ve been immersing myself in tragic histories lately, but I really tend to get emotionally-invested to stories where the characters eternally pine for days gone by and where heroes have fallen because of the treachery of others. Wretched historical endings like this also provide me an excuse to dwell on those immaterial what ifs and rant at the inglorious, double-dealing personalities we sadly have in history.
For the sake of impartiality, I will have to read books that portray Richard III in a different light, but for now, I heart apologist fiction about him and even come to sympathize with the Ricardians who call in sick every 22nd of August.

Read information about the authorRosemary Hawley Jarman is an English novelist and writer of short stories. She was born in Worcester April 27, 1935. She was educated first at Saint Mary's Convent and then at The Alice Ottley School, leaving at eighteen to study singing in London for the next three years, having developed a fine soprano voice.
Family circumstances prevented her from continuing in this direction and she worked for a time in local government. She was married to David Jarman in 1958 and divorced amicably in 1970. She lived most of her time in Worcestershire at Callow End, between Worcester and Upton on Severn. She began to write for pleasure, and followed a very real and valid obsession with the character of King Richard III (1452-1485 - reigned 1483-85).
With no thought of publication she completed a 228,000 word novel showing the King in his true colours, away from Tudor and Shakespearian propaganda. The book was taken up almost accidentally by an agent, and within six weeks a contract for publication and four other novels was signed with William Collins Publishers, (now Harper Collins).
The author has had short stories published in many magazines in the UK and France and has been a member of the Society of Authors since 1970. She has been dubbed "A Daughter of Mark Twain" by the Samuel Clemens Society in the U.S.A. for her services to literature.
She lived with the prize-winning author R. T. Plumb for eighteen years in a West Wales cottage. They married in September 2002, but the marriage was cut short after Roy died of cancer in October 2003. Jarman (now Mrs. Plumb) is herself recovering from lung cancer, and is writing in the Fantasy genre.
