    Joanna of Navarre is not a popular choice as subject in straight history or HF If she was anything like the character imagined by Anne O Brien, it s no wonder not a very likable character Poor old Henry IV, no matter what he did, he was blamed for it Nobody really wanted Richard II to remain as king but it seems no one wanted Henry IV either and he wasn t such a bad old stick, just very hamstrung by circumstance I break with populist feeling over

    Some queens of England are much better known and have been written about muchoften than others I think it s fair to say that Joanna of Navarre is not one of them As Henry IV s second wife, Joanna or Joan as she is sometimes known , doesn t seem to get a lot of attention as far as historical fiction is concerned Anne O Brien s new novel, The Queen s Choice, is the first book I ve read with Joanna as the main character.As the novel opens in 1396, Joan

    Review originally published here of Navarre is one of ourforgotten queens as Henry IV s second wife, she bore no children and thus seemed to drop out of the historical radar The only thing I knew about her before I read this book was that her stepson had accused her of trying to kill him after the death of his father and had her imprisoned for several years Despite the tendency for authors of historical fiction to be drawn to feisty wom Review original

    It s 1399 When Joanna of Navarre s husband dies she gets to rule over Brittany temporarily until her oldest son is grown up She has a luxurious life and is an influential woman Her husband always liked the English and because of him Joanna meets Henry IV, the man who s going to be king of England They have a connection and he asks her to be his wife Joanna would become queen of England if she accepts, but she has to give up a lot if she decides to marry H

    Having not read around the history of this period this book was very appealing, there s nothing better than understanding a part of history that isn t so well broadcasted in the education system and media but thanks to Anne O Brien and her wonderful way with words I ve fallen in love with this period that stands before the famous ...

    Joanna of Navarre is not someone who has leapt to mind in the past as to be honest a lot of attention is always given to the men that wear the crown and not the women they are married to It was interesting to read about her life, although I know some artistic licence is used but when it is written so compellingly it s worth the reading It s a hefty tome at 549 pages, but if you are a book addict like myself it won t be a problem.Henry IV and Joanna of Navarre is w

    Having now read and enjoyed many of O Brien s novels, I have come to see the pattern governing the pages Each of her novels has extraordinary emotion and character depth, yet can have somewhat lacking plots in regard to both content and tension Given the topics that O Brien tackles War, familial clashes, politics, love, religion there is surprisingly little substance to the plots The Queen s Choice was an excellent example of this There were wars abound, families tor

    Can t say much as this is not published until January 2016, What I can say, is it is excellent, romance, scandal backstabbing , politics, and witchcraft strong, outspoken women, heroic men What s not to like

    I honestly couldn t decide whether to give this book a two or three star rating On one hand it gets marks for the subject and tugging at the hero worship of Henry V On the other hand, it s lacking in writing skill Basically, I ve read better and I ve read worse.
