"Worth has done meticulous research, even extending to the phase of the moon on the eve of Bosworth Field, but her narrative is far from dry-as-dust. Though conversations and some incidents must be invented, she makes them seem so real that one agrees this must have been what they said, the way things happened."—Myrna Smith, Fiction Editor, The Ricardian Register, Journal of the U.S. Richard III Society.
