    1 thought on “The Claimant: A Novel of the Wars of the Roses”

    1. The Claimant is a story of the Wars of Roses that does not involve the royalty of the day. Instead, the author chooses to demonstrate the effect of the infighting between nobility upon a fictional family that chooses early in the game to back the Duke of York.The Wardlows have even more to concern them than the fact that the head of their household has gone forth to back his friend against the anointed king. Unknown to them until it is too late, Geoffrey Wardlow has secrets in his past that are [...]

    2. This is he first book I have read by Simon Anderson and have to say that I was disappointed by the writing style and his narrative ability to tell a compelling story. He has taken a fascinating period in English history a spun a ho hum tale I was bored flipping through the pages As far as historical novels go there are far better.

    3. I finished reading the Claimant last night Actually it was 4 am when I read the last word; I couldn't put it down.I loved the way the author brought the era alive, the interesting plot and the characters as well. I confess being an Edmund fan, although he is supposed to be the villain. I just couldn't help but secretly root for him.I think there is room for a second book. Please write a part 2!

    4. I had difficulty maintaining interest in this book and would skip forward, then backwards. It did not seem to move smoothly but maybe it was because of the 2 main characters. I did enjoy it for it's historical aspect but truly struggled. The ending almost makes me wonder if there is a second one coming.

    5. good!!!Good!!!! The War of the Roses was fascinating, and it was interesting to see a non-royal side of it. Definite recommend!
