    The War of the Roses, Red Rose of Tudor and the White Rose of York. History expounded in the most entertaining way. Was Richard III a hunchbacked villain or the greatest York to occupy the throne? Answer lies within these covers.

The Reckoning is another love of mine. Welsh history is made very accessible and romantic and exciting.

Sharon Kay Penman - not my favorite of the Angevin stories...though Richard is not my favorite Angevin anyway. Still a great addition to the series and I look forward to A King's Ransom

Falls the Shadow is one of the books that led to a serious interest in researching Simon de Montfort.

Root Mini-Series by Alex Haley 1977. The series introduced LeVar Burton in the role of Kunta Kinte. A sequel, Roots: The Next Generations, was broadcast in 1979, and a second sequel, Roots: The Gift, was produced as a Christmas film which starred Burton and Gossett.

Penman brings the past to life. Historically as accurate as possible (she explains all deviance from fact), she is arguably one of the best historical fiction writers today. This book tells the story of Llewelyn of Wales and Joanna, daughter of King John of England. Truly a favorite!

If you are even slightly interested in the Kings and Queens of England, you must read this. Of the countless books that I have read, this is the most startling and eye opening look at the way history is developed and reported that I have seen.
