TGIT...thank God it's Tuesday read that right...I said Tuesday!  Don't get me wrong, I still love my Fridays...that's when I look forward to spending two days with the hubby and kid.  But Tuesdays also hold a special place in my heart.  Why, you ask?  Cause Tuesdays are when the new novels are released!

And this Tuesday you can bet I'll be at the book store when they open the doors to get my hands on...

All that history knows of Grace Plantagenet is that she was an illegitimate daughter of Edward IV and one of two attendants aboard the funeral barge of his widowed queen. Thus, she was half sister of the famous young princes, who -- when this story begins in 1485 -- had been housed in the Tower by their uncle, Richard III, and are presumed dead.
But in the 1490s, a young man appears at the courts of Europe claiming to be Richard, duke of York, the younger of the boys, and seeking to claim his rightful throne from England's first Tudor king, Henry VII. But is this man who he says he is? Or is he Perkin Warbeck, a puppet of Margaret of York, duchess of Burgundy, who is determined to regain the crown for her York family? Grace Plantagenet finds herself in the midst of one of English history's greatest mysteries. If she can discover the fate of the princes and the true identity of Perkin Warbeck, perhaps she will find her own place in her family.

Anne Easter Smith has also penned the fabulous novels, A Rose for the Crown and Daughter of York.


  1. I love Anne's work -- have read both of her first two novels -- A ROSE FOR THE CROWN is what started me down the Richard III road. I pre-ordered the THE KING'S GRACE from Amazon, though, and the shipping date, for some reason, is mid-April (I ordered two other books at the same time to qualify for free shipping). Anyway, I'll just have to wait -- maybe it'll ship earlier than expected.

  2. I just finished The Reluctant Queen by this whole period is still fresh in my mind. The Plaidy novel briefly mentions these figures and s I'm interested to read more about them. I too will head out to the bookstore for this one. Thanks.

  3. I really loved Anne Easter Smith's first book, and yet for some reason I haven't yet read the second one! I will still be on the lookout for this one though.

  4. Man, I am starting to garner quite a reading list!
