The Making of a Tudor


1421 - Trouble is brewing in Henry V's England. The Earl of Salisbury is to remarry and his daughter Alice is panic-stricken. If her new stepmother gives birth to a son Alice will lose her inheritance, and her husband, Richard Nevill, will not be pleased.

In an attempt to prevent this catastrophe Alice seeks help from a notorious wise woman. But she is unaware of the danger she is in and how much interest the powerful Bishop Beaufort is taking in her activities.

From the sorrowful court of a widowed queen to the heat and fear of war-torn France, The Making of a Tudor is a story of love, friendship and betrayal in a superstitious age where a woman's life is worth nothing if she's found guilty of treasonable witchcraft

A review by Kaycee of the ebook on Kindle.

Firstly, I’m declaring an interest: I’ve known Caroline since we joined the same creative writing course in 2009. We both belong to a small group of writers who have met weekly since. So you’d expect me to give The Fair Maid of Kent five stars, right? Well, I’ve seen Caroline master the craft of novel writing over the years. She is one of the most widely-read people I know, and it shows in her work. This is a great story, thoroughly researched, and told beautifully. You’ll really want to know ‘what happens next?’ at every turn of the page. Five stars is my honest rating.
