I swore I would not pick up this book to readas there are just too many in the series34 to dateWhat was the point when I would never be able to read them all Yetevery time I was at the library I would wander down the H section just to see if it was thereSo I decided why not Just the first oneprobably wont like itcant get into itproblem solved Well if you think like I did you'd be missing out on one great read This book has to have been the most enjoyable read Ive had in a long time and even if I dont conuer all the others The Founding will be a keeper for meThe Founding begins with the marriage of the Heir Robert Morland sheep farmerto a dowry poor ward Eleanor Courteney of influential Lord Edmund BeaufortSeeking power Robert's father Edward Morlanda right crusty fellowarranges the marriage between his second and only living son to spirited Eleanor who is appalled at being forced to marry a mere sheep farmer Eleanor has been seeing off and on a handsome young soldierwho just happens to be Richard Duke Of York At first I didnt care for Eleanor I found her ungratefulshe was after all dowerless and was given to a wealthy young man and futureShe was mean to Robert who falls in love with her at first sight while holding a torch for someone she can never have She always seemed snipy but then if I was popping out babies every year I guess I would be too But as the story unfolds and we get to know this couple and are drawn into their lives Eleanor not only grew on me but I came to respect this independent woman and shared her joys and her sorrows I became totally intwined in this family and each member of it And as the years spanned out I felt like I became part of it Never once was I bored because it moved at a pace that kept my interestAnd what apparently was a ill matched union these two very different people formed a surprising connection and there was some very special moments in the story that brought a hanky out But that same union will be tested by a bloody civil war and divide them and also bring tragedy close to homeThe history of the War of the Roses is not one I have read much about so here I was afraid I would get lost and confused on what was going on and who was whoYes there was a few times I had to flip back just to make sure I had the right person in place but all in all what a great lesson for me of the history in this time period and the people involvedI found this story to be a perfect balance of historyfamily sagaromance neither of these at anytime over shadowed the other and kept me drawn into this story from beginning to end all539 pagesI highly recommend this book even if you never read any of the othersdont miss out on this one Long after I closed the book these characters stayed with meand I didnt want to say good bye NowI wonder if The Dark Rose book 2 is in the H sectioncant hurt just to look
