The Circle of Fortune - Elizabeth Ashworth ~ Fine and well written

A very fine and well written book and sequel to Favored Beyond Fortune. Elizabeth Ashworth is an excellent writer and her research and detail of period is top shelf.

The demise of Edward II is treated somewhat differently than some novels I have read but it is well within historical possibility. The two books together were exciting and engrossing as was the love story of Alicia de Lacy and Eble le Strange.

I recommend them to those who enjoy this time period, which was immensely complicated and dangerously political, as well as a welcome change from the Tudors.
