characters à eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Anne OBrienAnne Neville is on my list of favorite ueens I prefer the outrageous and the neglected ones hence Eleanor of Auitaine and Anne Neville being way up there on the notepad Anne O Brien s story of the early life of Anne Neville or Nevill youngest daughter of celebrated earl Richard Neville of Warwick aka The Kingmaker was efreshing different and followed the historical timeline with artistic license The histories are silent egarding Richard the Third s ueen save that she was a political pawn during the Wars of Roses and she may or may not have been a childhood sweetheart of Richard We Are Shown Anne S Life shown Anne s life the daughter of the second most powerful magnate in England during the early eign of Edward IV her exile as a esult of her father s political blunders her betrothalmarriage to Edward of Wales #son of henry vi and yet another turn #of Henry VI and yet another turn a political pawn as Edward s younger brothers George of Clarence and Richard of Gloucester suabble over her portion of the Nevill inheritance after the death of Warwick at the Battle of BarnetMs O Brien does not give us a doe eyed suffering victim in *This Anne She Is Compliant *Anne She is compliant her father s wishes to be sure she had no choice but she shows strength and dignity in spite of all that is thrown at her especially when she is forced to live with ueen Marguerite of Anjou and Edward and is witness to a oyal household living in exile living on the brink of destruction as the ueen tries to eclaim England for her husband and son and Anne can do nothing I enjoyed Ms O Brien s portrayal of Richard duke of Gloucester who would later become King Richard the Third He is enigmatic uiet a volcano not uite eady to explode and sure of his means and methods in getting what he wants Shakespeare portrayed him as a dark sinister character and some of that legend is given to us but with interesting twi. This title is about England's forgotten ueen England 1469 A daughter of Warwick the Kingmaker Anne Neville cannot dictate her own future Her marriage will be political made purely to advance her family's interests But at the age of fourteen her father's treason forces her into exile and into an uneasy betrothal with Edward of Lancaster Edward is. Sts I won t spoil it for you that I thought made the well known story of Richard and Anne interesting He is sympathetic but no angel Anne s legendary disappearance in London is also a part of the story and again Ms O Brien *tells a different story than I ve ead in the past and again I loved it Anne Nevill *a different story than I ve ead in the past and again I loved it Anne Nevill her own story and the prose is straightforward eal and enjoyable as is the dialogue without Anne the Lancasters the Yorks sounding or playing out like a cable TV soap opera I would love it if Ms O Brien wrote the est of Anne s story sad though it was especially if it gave us the struggles and heartbreak that fell upon Anne after Richard seized the throne in 1483 Yes I ecommend this book and it s going on my ead it again shelf I guess we should thank Phillpa Gregory for a evival in historical omance if only the hangers on had her talent I have ead a slew of do I want to be a bodice ipper or do I want to pretend I have historical value novelsThis one probably falls in the middle of the pack as far as eadability and historical accuracy goes I think the authors of this genre should pay attention to how the authors #of historical
