READ Epitaph for Three Women 100 Arc leaves her village pastures on the command of heavenly voices; and Eleanor of Gloucester is drawn into a murder plot and becomes the centre of a cause celebre Murder greed and ambition flourish alongside sacrifice dedication and courage These are turbulent times as the defeated become the victorious I continue to marvel at how Plaidy can weave history facts so wonderfully and well into evocative fiction you feel like you are there alongside with the characters who lived eons ago

READ Epitaph for Three Women 100 On the death of Henry the fifth a nine month old baby is made King of England Ambitious men surround the baby king including his two uncles the Dukes of Bedford and Gloucester Shrewd and clever Bedford seeks to uphold all his late brother had won and preserve it for young Henry the sixth Gloucester a man 25 starsEpitaph for Three Women turned out to be far less about these three women than I was led to believe by the book s description Broken into three parts titled Katherine of Valois Joan of Arc and Eleanor of Gloucester only Joan or Jeannette rather has an actual story that follows her path in life The other two are background players to the politics going on at the time especially those concerning the Dukes of Bedford and Gloucester and England s fight for France Whenever Katherine enters the picture it s all light airy and extremely romanticized especially in regards to Owen Tudor For most of the book they live a totally idyllic life that doesn t feel realistic in the least Eleanor Cobham is portrayed as a scheming crown hungry social climber who proves far too trusting of witches and soothsayers Isabeau of Bavaria fares even worse and I got tired of the constant references to how whorish she was Since this was written historians have looked into the accuracy of her reputation and dismissed certain facets as untrue Still this isn t a completely bad book Putting aside Katherine s storyline where she only made cameo appearances anyway I enjoyed the first part the most Not knowing much about this period the history was fascinating The second featuring Jeannette was my least favorite but I lay full blame at my feet because I have just never cared for Joan of Arc s story so found most of this part boring While there was some interesting information in the book I didn t love the book but it s an easy introduction to this particular timeFor information on Eleanor Cobham I recommend Susan Higginbotham s guest post at Madame GuillotineOriginally Reviewed October 17 2012Received Local Library

REVIEW Epitaph for Three Women

READ Epitaph for Three Women 100 Of poor judgment greedy for wealth and power has other ideas In Lancastrian England and war torn France there are three women whose lives are to have a marked effect on the future Katherine de Valois haunted by an unhappy childhood finds love in an unexpected uarter and founds the Tudor dynasty; Joan of I feel the author should ve written a separate book for Joan of Arc The inclusion of her story here in the middle of the book feels utterly misplaced and it messes up the narrative flow It doesn t help that after Part 1 Part 2 starts by going back in time repeating events that have already been documented But then repeating information is an annoying Plaidy s trait Once we reach Part 3 there s repeated references of Henry VI harking back to when he saw Joan imprisoned to mention just one recycled themeAs with the previous books in the Plantagenet series the author tries to cover the lives of too many people involved during the period covered Because of her need to pack everything in events are rushed over which leads to lots of telling and a lack of showingEleanor Cobham Duchess of Gloucester is a fascinating historical person Pity the author couldn t have made of Eleanor s story Like most books by this author this one had the potential of being much better
