For those of you into The War of the Roses, check out “When Christ and His Saints Slept: A Novel” by Sharon Kay Penman. It focuses on Stephen and Matilda. “The Sunne in Splendour” by the same author focuses on Richard III and re-casts him in a very different light. Sometimes her books start off a little slowly, at least for me because I don't know this period as well and it's hard for me to follow all the relationships, but she really develops the characters and the books are well-researched.
