A Tangled Web: A Tale of the Fifteenth Century

Author: Emily Sarah Holt
Publisher: J. F. Shaw and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

A charming book which will repay the lover of English history for a careful perusal and also afford those who read the story merely as a past time a rare treat in following the fortunes or rather misfortunes of the chief actors in this drama of life. The book is, in short, the history of the two pretenders, Lambert Simnel and Perkin Warbeck, more especially of the latter, and of the troublous times of the seventh Henry. The religious experiences of several of the personages introduced are full of interest and Christian teaching. The gifted authoress has spared no pains in consulting authorities in order to unravel the "tangled web" of the history of the period and her investigations are consequently of permanent value. We heartily commend the book.
