So I was at the bookstore . . . again. This book jumped out at me and demanded to be read. Who am I to say no? I’m a sucker for historical fiction, especially stories about British kings and queens.

It does fulfill Nerd in the Brain’s challenge #11 – read a book with a red cover.

This book is told from the point of view of Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII. She was an interesting person in real life. Not only was she the mother of the King of England, she also founded two colleges.

Although, this story is fiction, many of the events are accurate. She was a figure in the War of the Roses. Historians say that she plotted to ensure that her song became King of England.

She may have been the most difficult mother-in-law in history. I usually read more than just the book to learn more about who the real person was. Thank goodness for the internet and links like this one –

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
