    The stories of Harry Rushden, a young goldsmith's apprentice, and of Henry VI of England. The book is supposed to be about the unlikely friendship between these two figures, but it doesn't quite work (and by quite, I mean not at all). The story of Harry Rushden is interesting enough, but the manner in which he is tied to the politics of the realm is specious, and the friendship he fosters with Henry VI seems tenuous at best. The sections detailing Henry's life are often boring, poorly paced, and The stories of Harry Rushden, a young goldsmith's apprentice, and of Henry VI of England. The book is supposed to be about the unlikely friendship between these two figures, but it doesn't quite work (and by quite, I mean not at all). The story of Harry Rushden is interesting enough, but the manner in which he is tied to the politics of the realm is specious, and the friendship he fosters with Henry VI seems tenuous at best. The sections detailing Henry's life are often boring, poorly paced, and serve little or no narative purpose. Lewis presents a simplified, and narrow view of politics and public opinion of the day. It reads like propaganda for Henry VI, and the Beauforts. This is like a manual on how not to write historical fiction. Lewis's writing often leaves much to be desired. She tends to go on about frivolous details, repeating the same frivolous details ad nauseam. How many times must we hear of Henry's aversion to meat? Or, specifically, lines such as the following: "I loved the sweet honey-and-milk drink all rich with honey and laced with wine; and sometimes we had it - a special treat." I die a little each time I read that. If Lewis had written a book solely about Harry Rushden, and not tried to splice a second (worse) book into it, then this would be decent. As it is, this book isn't really worth the time. I'm a bit disappointed, because I remember enjoying this more as a child. Though, now I realize that I hadn't remembered any of the tale that related to Henry VI, and only that which dealt with Harry.

    Got this through ILL. Not really what I expected, although not badly written.
