The fireplace hadn’t looked like a time-portal.
All Kate had wanted was a fun, relaxing day out, watching the knights jousting at Nottingham Castle. What she ended up with was something quite different.
Transported in a heartbeat from 2011 to 1485, how will Kate handle life at the Ricardian court? Even more importantly, how will she cope when she catches the eye of the king himself?
I am a massive fan of historical fiction and I have read a couple of books that have the same type of storyline as this one and I was a bit dubious about them but I have to say that having read this one, it is definitely one of the best I have read so far – it was well written and I loved the interaction between the characters.
I would love personally to have been able to see what this period in time was like and the author has captured it brilliantly in this story. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a pleasure to read. I have read a few books by this author now and I have to say that she has an excellent way of bringing the past to life.
4.5 stars from me rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – highly recommended!
