review ☆ Virgin Widow England's Forgotten ueen ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free 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. Warning there be spoilers And me being an irritated history fanI ll say it upfront I did not like this book and I had several problems with itAnne Neville in this book is portrayed as courageous headstrong and determined However there were several points in the book where she was just plain annoying and childish It s even irritating since the book is told entirely from her perspectiveAnother thing I had a problem with was Anne and Richard s marriage The book states that they obtained no papal dispensation receive official permission from the Pope in order to wed because of how closely related they were for their marriage and had their wedding at St Stephens in a private ceremony Historically the two were married at Westminster Abbey in London in July 1472I also had problems with the implications that Edward of Lancaster Anne s first husband and his mother Margaret of Anjou were incestuous I nearly threw the book against the wall at that point and almost gave up on reading but I plowed on I wanted to finish this bookThe ending of the novel was underwhelming it ends with Anne s son Edward of Middleham being born Even though Richard and Anne are crowned King and ueen in 1483 it never happens in the bookI almost threw the book against the wall again when the author stated that Anne probably died from cancer in the Reader s Guide at the end It was actually tuberculosisThe Virgin Widow is best classified as a historical romance novel with emphasis on the romance part and less on historical accuracy I d recommend it for those who enjoy historical romance but if you re looking for precise accuracy this isn t the book for you

review ☆ Virgin Widow England's Forgotten ueen ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Changeable and completely controlled by his powerful mother Margaret of Anjou In a hostile impoverished court Anne finds herself at the mercy of other's whims On her wedding night the audience assembled to witness her bedding instead witnesses a royal humiliation At the point of consummation ueen Margaret forbids the act Anne went to her husban. I really do like historical fiction and though this has been good it hasn t been a five star read I liked Anne She s a very good leading character in this book as the virgin widow I ve always been fascinated by the neville s daughters And Anne has always been the outstanding sister unlike Isabel To be married to 2 kings in her lifetime and be destined for the throne of England twice through her marriages has made her a very strong woman in the Plantagenet world But at the same time I feel like she has been a very misunderstood character she has been the sister that has been in the shade until Richard stood his ground and kidnapped her to give her the freedom she desiredI feel like life has always been sad despite her love for Richard and her marriage and becoming ueen of England This book has portrayed that sadness her life has always been determined to be in the path of the Plantagenet brothers by the power of her father and in some ways This has led to hers and Isabel s downfall at their hands The writing has been a little staid I felt that there was need of Emotion in the characters what they experienced and that s why I can t give it five stars
