Reviews

"Impeccably researched and beautifully written, Nicola Tallis's latest biography is her best yet. She dispels the many myths surrounding Lady Margaret Beaufort and in their place creates an altogether more compelling portrayal of a woman of extraordinary courage, vision and passion. A must read."--Tracy Borman, author of The Private Lives of the Tudors and Elizabeth's Women
"A sensitive, well-rounded and moving portrayal of the woman who founded the Tudor dynasty."
--Michael Jones, author of The King's Mother
"Stunning-informed, assured, and compulsively readable. Nicola Tallis gives us not only the story of how the Tudor dynasty began, but a sympathetic and convincing portrait of the flesh-and-blood woman who was its founding mother."--Sarah Gristwood, author of Game of Queens and Blood Sisters
"Tallis is a zealous destroyer of myth... [She] deploys an extraordinary eye for detail in telling this story... Through this superb revisionist biography, Margaret Beaufort emerges as a fascinating and often surprisingly sympathetic matriarch."--The Times of London
"A fresh biography of the woman who ushered in the Tudor dynasty... For fans of British royal history, Tallis is a reliable guide, and the timeline and dramatis personae are highly useful. A deeply researched work that allows this historic personage to live and breathe."--Kirkus Reviews
