The Sunne in Splendour
Available in Stock
Presenting Richard III as a man more sinned against than sinning, Sharon Penman’s classic novel was written from the conviction that ‘history is rewritten by the victors’, and it served Henry Tudor’s purpose to have Richard portrayed as a soulless monster. Set amid the Wars of the Roses, the novel follows Richard from childhood, through battles, love and the treachery of court politics, to his death on Bosworth Field. This 30th-anniversary edition includes some revisions and a new author’s note.
