A play about King Richard the Third of England 1452-1485. More>>
Reviews from around the World .....
‘A worthy successor to Daughter of Time,’ said David Hardwick, Ranger at the Bosworth Field Battle site.
P.A. Hancock, Provost Distinguished Research Professor, University of Central Florida – ‘Ollie’s book is a most enjoyable contribution to the historiographic genre … occasional nuggets of information and surprises … finds one running for reference texts and asking questions such as “Is it true” or “Could that have happened?” It is an engaging book that will interest most Ricardians, and it acts to stimulate ideas about possible courses of events. In this, its value goes well beyond mere pleasure alone. An excellent tour guide too … Ricardians will want to re-create the Ollie “Tour”!’
‘Well-researched, well-written, and very enjoyable.’ Annette Stark, Past Chair, Richard III Society of New Zealand.
R. Corney, The Dominion: ‘The history of King Richard works … I got thoroughly hooked.’
M. Christensen, Wairarapa Times-Age: ‘For investigators and apologists for the Richard III phenomenon, On the Trail of King Richard III will prove engrossing reading’.
Every age has its heroes and its villains. Richard III, King of England (1483-1485) was a villain, a monster perhaps, but that's Shakespeare's version sourced from documents which were either pro-Tudor or blatantly anti-York; the Wars of the Roses - The Continuation.
But, was he so very evil? Not according to a small group of enthusiastic individuals called "Ricardians" who seek to have the truth told. The central character of this work of fiction - Laura Kempe - is determined to do her own investigation of the life and times of King Richard III, using a combination of common sense, instinct and more than a touch of ESP. She gets more than she bargains for however when she reaches for the ultimate prize; the truth about what happened to the "Princes in the Tower" and unwittingly unleashes a chain of events which threaten to destroy her and her traveling companions.
Witty, amusing and provocative, this is a story overflowing with little-known facts, bizarre encounters and finally, unremitting evil. A traveler's tale? Absolutely! But, be warned! For those who seek knowledge must come prepared, for often it seems Truth is jealously guarded to the death, and sometimes beyond!
