The fireplace hadn’t looked like a time-portal.
All Kate had wanted was a fun, relaxing day out, watching the knights jousting at Nottingham Castle. What she ended up with was something quite different.
Transported in a heartbeat from 2011 to 1485, how will Kate handle life at the Ricardian court? Even more importantly, how will she cope when she catches the eye of the king himself?
My first book by this author. Not my usual kind of read, but it sounded intriguing so was keen to give it a try! It is only a short read, probably slightly shorted than a novella, so was nice and quick to read.
Kate finds herself transported through a time portal in a fire place to 1485 and the time of Richard III just before the Battle of Bosworth. Through Kate’s eyes we see what it was like in the court of Richard III! As it was only a short story, the story didn’t go into as much detail as it could have done if it was a full length novel, but it was still an interesting read to see how a woman from 2011 finds life in the 1400’s particularly when she knows what will happen to Richard III in the forthcoming weeks.
The detail was great and obviously well researched and factually correct. Ideal for historical fans and absolutely perfect to read in an hour or so! Would have loved it to have been much longer as I learnt so much from this short read – imagine what I could have learnt from a full length book!!
Jennifer is a marine biologist by training, who developed an equal passion for history whilst stalking Mary, Queen of Scots of childhood holidays (she since moved on to Richard III). She completed her BSc and MSc at the University of Hull, and has worked as a marine environmental consultant since graduating. Enrolling on an adult education workshop on her return to the north-east reignited Jennifer’s pastime of creative writing, and she has been filling notebooks ever since. In 2014, Jennifer won the Story Tyne short story competition, and also continues to work on developing her poetic voice, reading at a number of events, and with several pieces available online. Her Kindred Spirits novels are published by Crooked Cat Books and available via Amazon.
