When his mentor, the Archbishop suggests that he should write a history of the reign of Richard III, the young Thomas More believes that he has been given a unique opportunity to delve into the past, unravel its mysteries, and set the record straight. But More is to address the turbulent final years of the Wars of the Roses, and he himself unwittingly becomes embroiled in a conspiracy involving the creation of history itself.Raleigh Bruce Barlowe's imaginative treatment of the great debate surrounding Richard III brings its historical characters to life: Thomas More, the brilliant but tormented scholar; Archbishop Morton, an unscrupulous but affectionate man looking back on a career in which he has seen too much; and Brother Bernard, a conscientious monk whose researches uncover some disturbing suggestions.Where does the truth lie? Was Richard III an honourable king or a monster? What really happened to the Princes in the Tower? And how did the generally accepted version of events come down to us? In this novel we hear the voices of those who were there, telling their very different stories, and, by fitting these together, we are brought to an intriguing conclusion.
