The Three Edwards by Thomas Costain

The Three Edwards (The Plantagenets, #3)The Three Edwards by Thomas B. Costain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For his third book on the Plantagenets, Costain does it again. He continues to tell the story of the English Kings while adding interesting side notes on the period and the people of the realm.

One of my favorite side notes was his discussion of the origin and use of the button!

Additionally although he seems to favor King Edward, Costain does provides a very fair re-telling of the king’s treatment of William Wallace.

I also enjoyed Costain’s discussion of Mortimer’s escape. He took the time to present the story well.

If you like his other books on this famous family, you will enjoy this too.
