Margaret Beaufort Review

Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII, must rank as one of the most important people in late medieval England. It was through her efforts that her son, who claimed the throne through her, was able to present himself as a credible candidate for the throne.

Susan Abernethy has just published a great review of Margaret Beaufort: Mother of the Tudor Dynasty (Amberley, 2010) on her blog, The Freelance History Writer. 'Norton has certainly done her research and her writing style makes this an informative and pleasant read' and 'I enjoyed the book very much and came to admire Margaret Beaufort as the formidable survivor that she was'.

It has been a good week for reviews!
