First of the Tudors focuses on the life of Jasper Tudor, son of Queen Catherine of Valois and her second husband, Owen Tudor, as the Wars of the Roses wreak havoc on the realm.

|Every now and then I like a change from my normal crime fiction and I will read a book from the historical genre.
Joanna Hickson has a brilliant new novel flowing with characters who have passion and betrayal within the Tudor family.
I enjoyed reading First of the Tudors so much that I will be reading about Harri Tudors story in Joanna’s next novel The Crimson Crown, which will pick up from where First of the Tudors finishes. I do hope that readers will join me we will discover more about the characters Jasper, Jane, Sian, Davvy and Margaret Beaufort as well as many new historical characters.
First of the Tudors is perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory, Anne O’Brien and C.W. Gortner.
