This book is based on the life of Lambert Simnel who was chosen to pretend to be the missing heir to the throne Edward VI. It tells of his rise to power and subsequent loss of power just as quickly. What I liked was the length and accessibility. Unfortunately, to me the length was also a disadvantage as was the 1st person telling. I never felt like I really got immersed in the conflict or Lambert's life - just not long enough to accomplish that.
