    1. There is always much to be said about Henry VIII (in fact, it is his birthday today as I type this); and similarly, much said about his father Henry VII and grandmothers Margaret Beaufort and Elizabeth Woodville. Yet, not much is ever dicussed about his mother, Elizabeth of York. You can imagine my happy face as I came across this book in the library. I was at first reluctant when I saw the published date of 1975, being that it is always best to read up-to-date history books but I decided I woul [...]


    2. Harvey admits in her introduction that she romantizes the history, and for the record, I hate it when people do it. How do you know what people were thinking? Was Elizabeth of York really feeling a mixature of a emotions when she watched Prince Arthur marry Princess Catherine, so much so she wondered about Henry.And I didn't know that Elizabeth's youngest brother got married when he was three. Elizabeth of York is a puzzle. She is quiet, and this book does nothing to change that prespective of h [...]


    3. As the rough draft of a historical fiction book about Elizabeth of York, it’s great, as the final draft of a factual biography about Elizabeth of York, it’s terrible.Left, right and center, the author blithely makes things up (or repeats old myths) and tries to pass them off as “facts.”The one good thing about this book was the poetic analysis that described Elizabeth as the “eye of the hurricane” – a very apt description for the poor, passive, pacific princess.


    4. This is a very old book, written in 1973, but it is one of the few books about Elizabeth of York. (I believe there are four books, including the ones by Okerlund, Amy Licence, and (upcoming) Alison Weir.)I'm always inclined to be generous when rating books on tougher subjects - like women - where the sources are scant. I also am fairly generous because I'm often just grateful somebody has written *something* on the more obscure topics.With that said, the author takes some imaginative or speculat [...]


    5. This offers good insight into what this quiet but important queen contributed to British history. I like the narrative style and the few illustrations are relevant and good. Perhaps because it was written in the early seventies, it is quite subtle (nowadays the focus seems to be on heaving bosoms over tight bodices when it comes to the Tudors!).



    6. Entertaining and easy to read, but not academic, and won't tell anyone who has any familiarity with the era anything new.
