What reading level is The Kingmaker's Daughter book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

The king himself has seventy-five thousand crowns in his treasury as payment for his promise for a peace treaty to last for seven years, and the King of France will pay fifty thousand pounds a year, every year that Edward does not re-state his claim to English lands in France. George Duke of Clarence, who was always at his brother’s side during the haggling, at the ready when there was easy money to be made, is named as the trustworthy councillor to arbitrate on this dishonourable pension, and h...e too is being paid a fortune. The only dissenting voice comes from my husband – of all the men who rode to France and came back richer, only my husband Richard warns Edward that this is no way to defeat the French king, cautions him that the commons of England will think that their taxes have been wasted, swears that the citizens of London and the gentry in parliament will turn against him for this dishonour, and begs him not to sell England’s birthright for this pension. I think Richard is the only one in all of the great English army to speak against the treaty.

very good. I think I preferred this to the White Princess which was my first book. The characterisation is more varied and Anne is stronger than Elizabeth. Richard really is scummy.

I don't know where this writer got he information from, about the number of children that Cecily Neville had. Isabel has just said that she only had two children Isabel and Anne. This is absolutely untrue. She had TWELVE children, one of whom was killed with her husband the Duke of York. There were about 4 who dies either at birth or shortly after. This was very common then women were conceiving like brood mares every year, so many children died at birth as did many wives.

This writer's account of the still birth of a boy during a storm at sea is not believable in any sense. It is so highly overdramatised that it detracts heavily from an otheriwse interesting tale, evenn if over drawn out and over long. Too much dialogue on mere nothings are not interesting to a reader who is a student of history and prefers facts, even if highly dramatized.

A good story that flows easily. Told from the viewpoint of two sisters who have both been pawns in their father's ambition. Beautiful attention to historical detail.

Though at times it felt a little rushed, overall turned out to be a good and enjoyable read.
