Rosemary Hawley Jarman's attention to historical detail is amazing. Plus, it's gripping reading - the (real-life) passionate love affair between a dowager queen and a welsh page/musician. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. Recently Viewed and Featured

item 2 Hawley Jarman, Rosemary, Crown in Candlelight, Paperback, Very Good Book -Hawley Jarman, Rosemary, Crown in Candlelight, Paperback, Very Good Book. Best selling author both in the UK and the North America, Rosemary Hawley Jarman was born in Worcester. She lived most of her time in Worcestershire at Callow End, between Worcester and Upton on Severn. She began to write for pleasure, and followed a very real and valid obsession with the character of King Richard III.

Jarman, while sketching in all the basic history one needs to know, avoids most Famous Moments (she attempts St. . Crispin's Day, paling beside the bard) and lingers long on the imagined and the esoteric: Owen's mystical Welsh background (prophesies and such), his dying days in prison, young Henry VI's brooding over the murder of Joan of Arc. Except for a few heavy-breathing romantic flushes, Jarman's dialogue is downright stageworthy, and her prose is a model of tasteful fulsomeness and forceful detail.

I really fell in love with Jarman's style. It's very flowing and lyrical; I'd never read anything by her before. It's a very fine historical novel. I was only a little disappointed at times with the character of Owen Tudor, who was a selfish bastard (per the author's characterization), but that only made the novel more realistic. Putting aside my strictly personal disappointment with aspects of Owen's character, it is the growing love story between Owen Tudor and Princess Katherine, and the tender description of her marriage to Henry V, which are wonderfully realized and well-written. Why isn't this novel still in print?? It deserves to be!

This author is one of my favorite writers. All of her books are excellent and re-read them frequently. High recommend.

What a great read this book is, anyone interested in English, French, Welsh history will enjoy reading about Henry V, Henry Vl, and Henry Vll of England, Charles IV of France and Owen Tudor of Wales, but the main character of CIC focuses on Katherine Valois, the daughter of king Charles . She was a brave and beautiful woman way ahead of her time and her great love for the forbidden Owen Tudor changed history forever.......they both unknowingly started the Tudor line of kings for England.. lots of romance,love,deception and you might even cry at the end but for a novel it has an awful lot of non fiction history. Read this book you won't regret it.........

a good book to ready

I tried to work through the first three chapters and found that not only was it confusing, it was dragging so I couldn't really get into it. A disappointment.

I bought this book, thinking to enjoy a great "new" historical read, but - GOSH! - if this is how books were written in the 1970's, am I ever so glad there are now better historical fiction authors in the intervening years! Poor character developement from this author, no maps, no editing (ie, no italics for thought, no real breaks for switching characters' voices, etc), and you can do a lot better with reads from Vanora Bennett (about Katherine of Valois also) all the way up to Sharon Kay Penman (ANY of her Medieval books are worth reading)! Don't buy this book if you value your time and enjoyment!

unfortunately I can't.

I am a lover of history and find Catherine's story both interesting and very sad. So I was excited to get this book. I had read Ms. Jerman's "The King's Grey Mare" bio of Elizabeth Woodville and expected this book to be just as compelling.

So what was the problem? The format of the book was so small I couldn't read the text. It was a major disappointment. I'll pass it along to my sister in law whose eyesight is much better and she can give me the review!
Before the "War of the Roses" there was the brutality of the "Hundred Years War". Much of this novel consisted of the events which surrounded the last stage of the war under King Henry V. Initially, the first part of the book "The Murderers" dealt with the early life of Katherine Valois, daughter of Mad King Charles of France. Her sad and neglected life was portrayed wonderfully as she depended on the love and sympathy of her older sister, Isabelle (Belle, widow and second wife of King Richard II). The rifts between the various French houses, eg, Burgandy, Orleans, etc. was described in detail as well. This was a bit tedious for me as my French history of the early royals is lacking. Thankfully, I was able to "Google" when needed!

Part two of the book, "The Prophecy" introduced us to Owen Tydier, a Welsh squire,the future love of Queen Katherine. Other characters such as Hywelis treated those around her with the "sight". She used this gift to predict and protect Owen's future throughout the story. Of course I am oversimplifying here but the real story began for me in Parts Three and Four.

During these sections, the personality of King Henry V came flying off the pages as he conquered French provinces while marrying Katherine of France. My, this author certainly knows her history and there is plenty of it in this book! Even King James I of Scotland made an appearance as he was an English prisoner of Henry IV for eighteen years.

The love affair between Owen and Queen Katherine following the heart wrenching death of King Henry V was both beautiful and poignant and it showed in the writing of this author.

While this book was not necessarily an easy read for me and her writing was a bit too flowery at times, "Crown in Candlelight" was a magnificent book enriched with a great deal of history.
