I enjoyed Royal Mistress and was glad to read about yet another important woman from the War of the Roses. A lot of research was done for this story, most of the characters are non-fictional and there are real excerpts from letters and text written at the time. All of the real characters were true to their historical counterparts and without being flat.
Jane's story is captivating and I'm glad that there is a story from her point of view. Personally, I would have enjoyed it better if the entire story was told from Jane's point of view alone. There are many points of view introduced in this story, which the author, Anne Easter Smith, explains at the end of the work. The switching viewpoints and additional storylines did become a little tedious for me since I have read much about this time period. However, if you are a lover of historical fiction and enjoy this time period, you will enjoy the book.
