THE WIDOW'S TALE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical
In 1449 England, Christiana Helyngton's husband, Edward,
The always shrewd Dame Frevisse
Frazer, noted for her meticulous research, does not disappoint with Frevisse's latest outing. England in the 1400s comes alive, as we witness the volatility of life under Henry VI, when women could have everything taken away from them when their husbands died.
The author uses many real historical persons in her books, deftly and flawlessly weaving them into the story. Her fictitious characters are also well defined, and Christiana will break the reader's heart. (Jan., 272 pp., $22.95)
