The Sun in Splendour book. Like most books by Jean Plaidy, The Sun in Splendour had the potential of being much better. Having now read the entire Plantagenet saga, I rate this the second worse after the previous novel. The Wars of the Roses was a fascinating and complex period in English history. It’s the period I’m most knowledgeable about, therefore I can state that this novel is more like a substandard biography.

Ah,' retorted Hashngs, 'but we are in that of the su. Hastings was clever, witty, a good commander and best of all a faithful friend. Edward trusted people too easily, Hastings often told him; but Edward shrugged that aside.

Jean Plaidy The Sun in Splendour. Chapter I THE MEETING IN WHITTLEBURY FOREST. Jacquetta was watching from the topmost turret of Grafton Manor for the arrival of her daughter. He was a magnificent soldier, an ardent lover of women and the greatest possible contrast to poor Henry who was so saintly that he longed to be a monk and had on more than one occasion lapsed into madness. Perhaps, thought Jacquetta, we are on the wrong side. Her heart began to beat faster for in the distance she could make out a party of riders. Elizabeth was carried from the Tower to the Abbey in her litter. and the Londoners came out to marvel at her beauty and to look at the King whom they so much admired; and they thought the marriage was so romantic and just what they would have expected of their handsome King.

  • This is the last book of Jean Plaidy's Plantagenet Saga and is a very good ending for the series. This tells the story of three kings. Edward IV, Edward V and Richard III. You are also very well introduced to Elizabeth Woodville and Anne Neville.

    I read most of this book during a power outage and continued to read through the night because this book told a story I didn't know and kept me wanting to know more. I've only read The Reluctant Queen: The Story of Anne of York (A Queens of England Novel) and that was told from Anne Neville's point of view and mostly concerned her love for Richard III. This book told that story and the stories of everyone surrounding them.

    Most important to this tale, for me, was Edward IV. A supposedly handsome man he married Elizabeth Woodville without "permission" from Richard Neville, the Kingmaker, sparking all kinds of trouble. You don't really get a feel for the type of woman Elizabeth Woodville was like you do in Philippa Gregory's The White Queen: A Novel (Cousins' War) but you get the jist of their story. You really get to know Edward though and Jean Plaidy made me wish I could meet him just once as he seemed like a really fun person. Her writing style pulls him through.

    I also really loved that she gave a lot of attention to the mystery of the Princes in the Tower. I've never read anything much on that and she does an amazing job on it. I'll also say she does a very good job and breathing life into Edward V. A king with such a short reign I nearly always forget about it.

    Then there's the hated Richard III. Jean Plaidy's Richard isn't so bad. He's not 100% likable, but you don't hate him. I liked the treatment he received in The Reluctant Queen: The Story of Anne of York (A Queens of England Novel) but unlike that book this one goes into his reign after the death of his wife.

    Overall a very good ending to a wonderful series. I was very sorry it had to end.

  • Good book!

  • Another Jean Plaidy masterpiece!

  • I read this book because the main characters are my ancestors and in my family tree. I have read all 16 books in the Plantagenet line which bring their stories to life so I can learn about how they lived and their ups and downs of daily life even as royalty. Jean Plaidy has always been a favorite author of mine and I have many many of her books and others under other pen names. She does her research well and brings life to the people in her books!

  • I found this book easy to read, and very accurate about the period of time
    Jean Plaidy is one of my favorite authors

  • It's written on such a low level it's a bore. Read Rosemary Hawley Jarmins We Speak No Treason
    You will cry.

  • This volume is but another superb educational tool for anybody who would dig into his or her's heritage. It's essential to understanding from where our Anglo/American culture has evolved.

  • I'm into historic fiction and particularly Wars of Roses. This was agood read and I like this autthor.
