by Alison Weir
"In a passionate performance filled with high drama, Maggie Mash recounts the interconnected stories of two women, Katherine Grey, sister to the ill-fated Lady Jane Grey, and Kate Plantagenet, illegitimate daughter of Richard III. With 80 years separating the women, one mystery draws them together--learning the truth about the fate of the princes exiled to the tower during Richard III's reign. Mash's male voices are frequently too loud, lacking in subtlety, and unusual pauses in her narration may prove distracting. However, she is especially effective at voicing young women, and her children's voices are outstanding. Alison Weir's lengthy historical novel draws parallels between the lives of these women, both pawns to the overweening ambitions of their male relatives in the deadly game of "kingmaking." S.J.H.
