About this title

Synopsis:

GEORGE OF CLARENCE. THE TOWER OF LONDON. SUMMER 1477. "I- HAVE GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME. I KNOW IT! I WILL BE LUCKY TO ESCAPE WITH MY LIFE! I DO NOT THINK I WILL-I FEEL I WILL NOT BE LONG HERE. EDWARD WILL EITHER RELEASE ME SOON OR HAVE ME EXECUTED-AND SOMETHING TELLS ME IT WILL BE THE LATTER- -WILL RICHARD PERSUADE THE KING TO LET ME LIVE? I THINK THE KING WILL BE ADAMANT. HE IS AFRAID OF ME, YOU SEE, AFRAID OF WHAT HE SUSPECTS I KNOW! HE WILL DO THIS BECAUSE I HAVE A SECRET ABOUT HIM THAT I FOUND OUT BY ACCIDENT! IF REVEALED, IT WOULD BLOW HIS WORLD APART AND THAT OF HIS VICIOUS QUEEN-WHO IS NO QUEEN IN TRUTH-AND THAT OF HIS CHILDREN! -THE WHOLE SUCCESSION WOULD BE PUT IN JEOPARDY! HE IS TERRIFIED THAT I WILL OPEN MY MOUTH AND TELL WHAT I KNOW! SO HE CANNOT LET ME LIVE, FEARING WHAT I COULD DO WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE! I AM TO DIE, NOT FOR MY MANY INDISCRETIONS, MY JEALOUSY OF HIM, OR MY PAST TREACHERY-HE FORGAVE ME THAT-BUT BECAUSE OF WHAT I KNOW AND COULD REVEAL AT ANY TIME! -I COULD DESTROY THEM ALL!

About the Author:

MARGARET W PRICE LIVES IN WORCESTER PARK SURREY, UK. SHE HAS SPENT MOST OF HER LIFE THERE, WITH SPELLS IN YORKSHIRE AND CORNWALL. BOTH OF WHICH SHE LOVES. SHE IS SINGLE AND LIVES WITH HER TWO BELOVED MINIATURE DACHSHUNDS, TWO SEALPOINT SIAMESE CATS AND A RESCUED MOGGY. SHE LOVES TRAVEL, GARDENING, ANIMALS AND THE ARTS, PARTICULARLY THE OPERAS AND MUSIC OF RICHARD WAGNER. SHE IS A RETIRED TEACHER, AND NOW, AFTER FORTY YEARS IN THE CLASSROOM, MAINLY AS HEAD OF MUSIC IN VARIOUS SCHOOLS, AFTER STUDYING AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF MUSIC IN LONDON, AND AS A PIANO TEACHER, SHE IS FREE TO INDULGE HER PASSION FOR WRITING. SHE HAS BEEN WRITING HISTORICAL NOVELS FOR YEARS, BUT NEVER HAD THE TIME IN HER BUSY TEACHING CAREER TO SEND HER WORK TO PUBLISHERS. BRITISH HISTORY, PARTICULARLY MEDIAEVAL HISTORY, HAS ALWAYS BEEN A GREAT PASSION FOR MARGARET AND SHE HAS HAD A LONG-TIME INTEREST IN RICHARD 111 AFTER LIVING IN YORKSHIRE, HIS MOST BELOVED COUNTY, AS A YOUNG WOMAN WHERE HER INTENSE INTEREST IN HIS LIFE BEGAN. THIS BOOK WAS BORN OUT OF A STRONG DESIRE TO VINDICATE HIM AND HELP CLEAR HIS BAD REPUTATION, BY SHOWING WHAT HE WAS REALLY LIKE, A BASICALLY GOOD AND WELL-MEANING MAN, WITH A STRONG WISH TO IMPROVE THE LOT OF THE BRITISH PEOPLE. MARGARET FEELS THAT ANYONE WITH AN UNCERTAIN VIEW OF RICHARD 111 BECAUSE OF THE WAY HISTORY HAS BLACKENED HIM, WILL SURELY AGREE WITH HER AFTER READING THIS BOOK THAT HE MEANT WELL AND DID A GREAT DEAL OF GOOD IN HIS SHORT REIGN.
