Recensione

Waldron certainly knows her history, and the details of this book ring true to the time period and the famous historical personages involved. Yet despite its accuracy for setting, Roan Rose is ultimately a book about character. Rose and Anne and Richard are all fully formed people with their virtues and faults, their moments of great kindness and integrity, and their selfish concerns and failings. Rose walks a difficult line between friend and servant. She is often Anne's closest confidant - and is more than once Richard's lover - but both Anne and Richard do not hesitate to put her in her place when it suits their purposes. ... Rose refuses to bow down in servitude, and her spirit is not broken ... Her heart belongs to the two people who always stand above her, who will never view her as their equal, yet who can never bear to part with her company for long. When they call for her, she comes - turning her back on her own family for the sake of her beloved Anne and a great king whose tragic end we already know.
--Dianne Salerni, "We Hear the Dead," "The Caged Graves."

Sinossi

More like a gangland war for turf and loot than chivalry, the War of Roses disrupted the life of the English commoners for hundreds of years. Roan Rose is the story of one of these, a girl born on the Yorkshire dales. When the Countess of Warwick, decides to take sturdy, gentle Rose to Middleham Castle to be companion and bed-time poppet for her youngest daughter, her fate is changed forever.

Rose bonds strongly with Anne Neville, her young mistress. She also meets a royal boy enduring his knightly training—Richard of Gloucester, King Edward’s little brother. The noble children have illness and accidents as they grow, but Rose remains a constant, always there to nurse and serve.

Rose bears intimate witness to the passions, betrayals, battles and all the reversals of fortune which will shape her lady’s life—and her own. Anne Neville will briefly become a Queen, and Richard, Rose’s secret love, will become a King, one whose name has become synonymous with evil. When the King is betrayed and slain at Bosworth Field, Rose returns to a peasant’s hard life. She has one final service to perform.

Formato: Formato Kindle
It's another Ricardian "We Speak No Treason", with a young servant in Anne Neville's Middleham household providing Richard of Gloucester with his first sexual experiences before his marriage to Anne and brooding over him for the rest of her life. The only difference is this time the girl seems better able to stand up to a conservation with nobles (which makes it definitely unplausible for the times), learns how to play chess and manages to sneak back into Richard's bed after Anne's death to breed yet another imaginary posthumous illegitimate child.

However, We Speak No Treason depicted a landscape that was at least respectful of the historical figure of Richard III as documented. Here we get a frustrating early love triangle between Anne, her servant Rose (with attitudes between the 2 girls bordering on lesbian) and a young Richard who picks the servant's "flower" in a one night stand while Anne has been hidden by George of Clarence and takes the servant back into his bed barely hours after Anne's Death (and a lot more wenches later too, according to his own words to her when they lie in bed days before Bosworth). The last straw was reading of Richard refuting God and his lifelong values, naming himself a fool for not taking the servant as steady mistress alongside Anne right from the start and ultimately regretting a lifelong set of moral values and piety.

There's a whole bunch of female authors lately who seem to relieve their ancestral frustrations by projecting their obscene fantasies over this already overmaligned king. They must think that turning the shakesperean scheming monster into a sex machine will help reassessing his reputation. I think this only makes for poor chick lit with a few famous names and very little history sticked to it.

5.0 su 5 stelle One of the best historical fiction! 20 settembre 2016
Di Jeannie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Well researched and the best, in my opinion, to get a glimpse of the Richard III. It portrays him as a sweet and just young man who were a brave and an excellent Duke who also loved Anne Neville. Once his brother Edward dies and the kingship is at stake, his paranoia, not totally unfounded, overtakes him and becomes the "evil king." I savored this book the second time around and took my time with it. I absolutely loved it!

2.0 su 5 stelle Disappointing. It read more like a very rough draft than a finished story. 5 settembre 2016

The author, proofreaders,etc need to pay attention. There are so many spelling/grammar/wording, etc errors the storyline gets lost. Or did the author simply start writing whatever popped into her head without worrying about where she was going with it?
5.0 su 5 stelle Wonderful read 3 giugno 2015

I loved this book. It's my favorite of all the books I've read by Ms. Waldron so far.

This is the story of Rosalba Whitby, a peasant girl who becomes a companion to Anne Neville, future wife of Richard III. It's written in Rosalba's POV and I literally became immersed in her life and times thanks to the author's attention to detail and description.

Richard III is not portrayed as the monster history has made him out to be, rather a product of the political intrigue at the time.

Wonderful read and I highly recommend it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Read about Rosealba 9 luglio 2014
Di Kathleen Ingram - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A very good book that I enjoyed immensely and recommend whole heartedly. A special purchase that I am glad I hear about and read until I was finished. Juliet Waldron's grasp of time and period history is superb and detailed. Her characters were well developed and sympathetic.

Historically, of course this did not happen but it COULD have as we know that Richard III had relationships in his early years, two at least that produced children. Period wise, such relationships were commonplace which made the book so plausible and delightful.

Rosealba's origins and her life story were fascinating, she represented everywoman of those harsh medieval times.As a back story to the life of Richard III it was flawless.

The ending gave me a bit of a pause, but eventually books end in some fashion. I recommend this book for historical fictions fans and especially for lovers of all Richard III era works. I will look up the author's other books right now.

Interesting historical perspective of the times of the War of the Roses that tore into the very fabric of the lives of the ordinary people of England. It provides another view of the life of Richard III and those in his life, both commoner and royal.
