Her infant son is crowned king of England and France, and while the country simmers on the brink of civil war, Owen becomes her protector.

Needs More Emotion

I enjoyed the historic aspect of the book. However, the narrator's delivery invoked very little emotion, and did not bring the characters to life. A less refined, more impassioned narrator could have greatly enhanced the listening experience.

Love this stuff.

But it had some inaccuracies that didn't make sense. It wasn't enough to make me stop listening because it was a good listen. I just don't understand the point of killing off his daughter Margaret as a newborn. It's nowhere near as shameful as Showtime's The Tudors mishmashing Margaret and Mary into one person-and I didn't stop watching-but still. Ah well. There's not much out there that focuses on Owen and Jasper, so, for that, I'm grateful to Mr. Riches.

Great listen!

I really enjoyed this book. I was interested because of the subject of the book. I’ve yet to see another historical fiction centered on Owen Tudor and thought the author did a great job of bringing the love story of him and Katherine of Valois to life!

Well performed.<br /><br /><br />

Would have liked a bit more history but the sequencing was excellent and the narrator very good.

And So It Begins

Was very interesting to start from the beginning of the Tudor trilogy. To read about Owen Tudor and then to know when his grandson was born to be given the name Henry Tudor. Can't wait for the rest of the series.
