A surprisingly good take on the Wars of the Roses that doesn't have as protagonist any of the usual suspects but a woman few probably know of. The story opens with young girl Elizabeth Tilney, affectionately called Bess, at Grafton House on the day Edward of York is expected to arrive to wed Elizabeth Woodville, the marriage that'll cost him his throne later ahead and the enmity of Richard, Earl of Warwick.
That's not your common date to start a novel set in this period, is it?
Women fretting ove A surprisingly good take on the Wars of the Roses that doesn't have as protagonist any of the usual suspects but a woman few probably know of. Women fretting over a wedding, not quite the auspicious opening scene. And yet, it works. When the young king arrives, despite Bess is promised to one of his men, Sir Humphrey Bourchier, she falls head over heels for charming Ned, a girlish infatuation that'll shape her life for years to come, as she'll eventually become one of the bunch of one-time mistresses Edward IV will take, and suffer a bit of a disillusionment once she realises it's one-sided and settle into a companionable married life until premature widowhood ends it.
Narrating the story through the eyes of a girl kept mostly outside the politicking and the warring contributes to give the novel a very intimate feel, very domestic and feminine, but despite her place on the sidelines of history, Bess is not kept out altogether either due to her friendship with the Woodvilles pre and post their meteoric rise to power, her own brief liaison with Edward, her role as his queen's lady-in-waiting, her first husband's closeness to the king and her second's closeness to the Duke of Gloucester. Using a character who's not a member of the York or Lancaster circles by blood isn't unusual in HF, nor is it to use a fictional relative or fictional bosom chum as narrator, but this is the first time I've read a novel telling the tale through a woman who's not a Plantagenet nor remotely linked to them by familial ties, and more uniquely she has a foot on both the 2 major factions: the Woodvilles and the Yorks, and later on the Tudor camp.
I very much liked this detail, it provides a bit of a balanced view on the normally cats-and-dogs relationship between Ned's family and Elizabeth's family that's the norm in fiction; and though Bess isn't written to be "likable" precisely in the sense of being dashing and arresting, she endears herself to the reader through her loyal and unassuming personality. Dymoke's writing is perhaps what I liked best, it's tight and flows smoothly.
It isn't heavy but crisp, devoid of bumps for the most part. Can't say whether it's because it was well-edited or Dymoke's writing is always like that, this being the only book I've read of hers, but certainly not the last.
