Description

England, 1422: Owen Tudor, a Welsh servant, waits in Windsor Castle to meet his new mistress, the beautiful and lonely Queen Catherine of Valois, widow of the warrior king, Henry V. Her infant son is crowned king of England and France, and while the country simmers on the brink of civil war, Owen becomes her protector. They fall in love, risking Owen's life and Queen Catherine's reputation, but how do they found the dynasty that changes British history - the Tudors?

Needs More Emotion

I enjoyed the historic aspect of the book. However, the narrator's delivery invoked very little emotion, and did not bring the characters to life. A less refined, more impassioned narrator could have greatly enhanced the listening experience.

Love this stuff.

But it had some inaccuracies that didn't make sense. It wasn't enough to make me stop listening because it was a good listen. I just don't understand the point of killing off his daughter Margaret as a newborn. It's nowhere near as shameful as Showtime's The Tudors mishmashing Margaret and Mary into one person-and I didn't stop watching-but still. Ah well. There's not much out there that focuses on Owen and Jasper, so, for that, I'm grateful to Mr. Riches.

Great listen!

I really enjoyed this book. I was interested because of the subject of the book. I’ve yet to see another historical fiction centered on Owen Tudor and thought the author did a great job of bringing the love story of him and Katherine of Valois to life!

Well performed.<br /><br /><br />

Would have liked a bit more history but the sequencing was excellent and the narrator very good.

And So It Begins

Was very interesting to start from the beginning of the Tudor trilogy. To read about Owen Tudor and then to know when his grandson was born to be given the name Henry Tudor. Can't wait for the rest of the series.

interesting but dry

Narration and prose staccato. Mistakes in the text, twice in one scene, for example, the queen takes off her uncomfortable headdress, once as a brown-haired woman, next as a blonde. Owen's desire for Catherine seems to come from nowhere. He fantasizes about her but it all seems too contrived when they come together. There was no build up between his routine reports and when she flirts with him... The first-person present tense is also jarring. As entertainment, it's fine.
