She Read a Book


" . . . a wild ride through the lives of Henry and Kate, from the moment a four-year-old Henry learns of the death of his grandfather, the First Duke of Buckingham, to their first meeting as children and their marriage and lives together. Through the emotion and intimacy of their lives, we are taken on a journey through the story of the War of the Roses, told in a way that even those unfamiliar with the history will be able to follow along with the many historical figures to whom we are introduced, and the swirling tides of battles, victories, and shifting loyalties.
