New Release, The Tudor Rose by Margaret Campbell Barnes

Elizabeth of York, my favorite woman who was the only to be daughter, sister, wife to the crown. One of the greatest mysteries in history her lost brothers the "princes in the tower". One of my absolute favorite time periods, nearing the end of the war of the roses, Henry VII coming to the crown, and of course my favorite Henry VIII as a child. This has potiental to be a good read.
The Tudor Rose: The Story of the Queen Who United a Kingdom and Birthed a Dynasty

"One woman holds the key to England's most glorious empire in this intimate retelling of the launch of the Tudor dynasty
A magnificent portrait of Elizabeth of York, set against the dramatic background of fifteenth century England. Elizabeth, the only living descendant of Edward IV, has the most valuable possession in all of England—a legitimate claim to the crown. Two princes battle to win Britain's most rightful heiress for a bride and her kingdom for his own. On one side is her uncle Richard, the last Plantagenet King, whom she fears is the murderer of her two brothers, the would-be kings. On the other side is Henry Tudor, the exiled knight. Can he save her from a horrifying marriage to a cut-throat soldier?
Thrust into the intrigue and drama of the War of the Roses, Elizabeth has a country within her grasp—if she can find the strength to unite a kingdom torn apart by a thirst for power. A richly drawn tale of the woman who launched one of the most dramatic dynasties England has ever seen, The Tudor Rose is a vibrant, imaginative look at the power of a queen."


  1. This sounds very interesting...thanks for the heads up!

  2. I have had my eye on this book for a little while. I haven't read anything about this period of time, but it sounds so interesting. I will probably get this when it comes out.

  3. I totally agree with you about this book having potential. I too am totally fascianted by the story of the boys in the tower... Thanks- I'll look forward to this one:)

  4. I've got this one (the one shown) waiting to be reviewed. I know this is a reissue, but the funny thing is that there is an entirely different cover on Amazon which I noticed the other day. Very odd.
    Same publisher, so I wonder if they changed their minds on the cover already.


  5. hu, weird about the other cover. That is cool that you got a review copy. Be sure and let me know how it is. I am so behind on my reads I know it will be awhile before I get to this one. I am still excited about it even though it has to wait.

  6. They did change it. I found it on amazon.com and I saved it to my wish list and it had the cover I posted but now I went to my list and it is the other one you linked to but still saved in my list so it is the same but changed. Thanks for the heads up, I might have not remembered it with a different cover.
