Review Text

**Son of Henry V and the proud Queen Catherine of Valois, Henry VI commanded the universal love of his English subjects. But a singularly religious constitution and the oppressive guidance of the Duke of Gloucester made his complicated practical burdens an agony for the child king. In this story, told from the point of view of an impoverished young nobleman, the issues of the times - conflict between France and England, the burning of Joan, and the unorthodox remarriage of Queen Catherine - are made vivid as Hilda Lewis focuses with dramatic intensity on the inner and outer struggles of the saintly Harry. The author whose The Gentle Falconer was a work of outstanding merit once again shows herself prodigiously equipped to bring to history a view which is both emotionally and intellectually vigorous.
