A man other than my husband sits on England's throne today. What would happen if this king suddenly went mad? What would his queen do? Would she make the same mistakes I did, or would she learn from mine?

Margaret of Anjou, queen of England, cannot give up on her husband - even when he slips into insanity. And as mother to the House of Lancaster's last hope, she cannot give up on her son - even when England turns against them. This gripping tale of a queen forced to stand strong in the face of overwhelming odds is, at its heart, a tender tale of love.

Award-winning author Susan Higginbotham will once again ask listeners to question everything they know about right and wrong, compassion and hope, duty to one's country, and the desire of one's own heart.

    " Margaret of Anjou; her story is compelling. "

    " Wonderful! Took me a bit of time to get into, but once I was hooked, I was hooked. I always approach this author's books with skepticism, and end up in love with her way with the historical figures she portrays. She restores humanity to the maligned she-wolves, incapable kings and avaricious nobles of last medieval England. It is easier to write accounts from the side of history's victors. This author delves right into the lives of the losers, granting readers of historical fiction with well-written alternatives. "

    " Great Book!! Susan Higginbotham did a great job in reviving history through the eyes of Margaret of Anjou. Her struggles and hopes for peace, as well as the future of her son and husband are born out beautifully through this novel. Royal history is sometimes a hard thing to fathom as the names, people and genealogies are a hard grasp for many, but Higginbotham manages to smooth sail over many of these anomalies and bring the reader not only a sense of what is going on, as the queen moves to rebuild her lost kingdom, but in the lives of those around her. She is able to seamlessly guide the reader through a small portion of history that has had much debate over the years. Was this woman really just scheming to get her own hands on the throne, or was it as Higgenbotham recounted it; a woman moving to get her husband placed back on the throne and ensure her sons future as the future King of England. I would suggest reading this book before reading "The Traitors Wife" also by S. Higgenbotham. I read in a reverse order, but they really go hand in hand. A must read! "

    " I did not enjoy this book as much as I did the others written by higginbothom. I couldn't acclimate to the characters. It's also not as smartly written as the others. It was dull and lacked her spark. Thus the three stars. "
