The Wilting Rose of Labour

As you may or may not already know, I am writing a series of novels set in the period now known as The Wars of the Roses. Now, I know many of you will be thinking “what was it like back then? What were the Wars all about?

Imagine, if you will, an inept government in control of the Kingdom. Yes, I know it must be difficult, but please do try to imagine such a thing. An England plunged into financial despair as a result fo a failed war and years of mis-rule and over-spending on frivolous pursuits. An England struggling with its identity and place in European and world politics. An England full of resentment against a corrupt set of rules, too busy and too intent upon their own desires and ambitions to be able to lead effectively.

I know, I know, it’s just too big a leap of imagination to make.

Anyway, for those of you who are able to make the connection, there’s only another year until Towton is fought. Or even Bosworth Field , for that matter.

Please let the right side win this time
