Royal Inheritance Book Review


Audrey Malte is illegitimate, though her beloved father—tailor to King Henry VIII—prefers to call her “merry-begot,” saying there was much joy in her making. Then Audrey visits the royal court with her father, and the whispers start about Audrey’s distinctive Tudor-red hair and the kindness that the king shows her. Did dashing Henry perhaps ask Malte to raise a royal love child? The king’s favor, however, brings Audrey constraint as well as opportunity. Though she holds tender feelings for her handsome music tutor, John Harington, the king is pressuring her to marry into the family of treacherous, land-hungry Sir Richard Southwell. Audrey determines to learn the truth about her birth at last. The answer may give her the freedom to give her heart as she chooses . . . or it could ensnare her deeper in an enemy’s ruthless scheme.


My Review of Royal Inheritance

If you like history books with a good story behind them, then you will want to read Royal Inheritance. This story is a wonderful story based on facts, rumors and maybes. It’s a step back in time to the famous Henry the Eighth and the story of one of his possible illegitimate children, though we will never know for sure.

The story is told by Audrey Malte to her daughter as a way to make her daughter understand why she needs to keep her mothers secret and why she needs to be careful. It’s a love story with a good, yet not really happy ending that takes you beyond the love story end and to the reality of the life after. It’s an interesting mix of past and present. Well Audreys past and present anyway.
