We will have 2 great historical novelists on hand for the launch of Anne Easter Smith's amazing new novel about the infamous Richard 111, The Son of York. Ann will be interviewed by Heather Webb, whose latest novel is Meet Me in Monaco, a novel of Grace Kelly's Royal Wedding..
Son of York is the 6th and final book of Anne's War of the Roses series. We have loved them all here at the Jabberwocky, but this one may just be her finest. Historical Novels Review says of Anne's books, "(they) grab you, sweep you along with the story, and make you fall in love with the characters..." Meticulous historical research, rich period detail, and compelling protagonists combine to provide the reader with a sweeping portrait of England in the time of the Wars of the Roses. Anne is a recognized expert on King Richard 111, but first and foremost she is a storyteller -- and what a story this is! The fate of the disappeared princes in the Tower of London has haunted England for centuries and the recent discovery of Richard's grave under a parking lot and recovery of his bones has brought the whole controversy back into the light. It's a powerful, tragic and mysterious tale.

Romance Reviews Today gave Royal Mistress “A Perfect 10! The story of Jane Shore is brought to life in this excellent, beautifully written novel.”
