Book Review: The King’s Commoner by David Field

Genre:Historical fiction
Publisher:Sapere Books
Pub date: 01 August 2019
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book delves in to the life of Thomas Wolsey as he builds a life for himself from the son of butcher to a Cardinal and the kings closest confidant. Along the way he made some powerful enemies who worked to bring him down, his only protection was the king and faithful Thomas Cromwell.

Wolsey was such a fascinating individual and I found David Field has researched this well, it is not just a fiction book it’s based on fact with embellishment which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am very much looking forward to the next instalment!

Field used George Cavendish: The life of Cardinal Wolsey as his main source and I am so intrigued, would absolutely love a copy of this but after a quick search it’s one hell of an expensive book!

Thank you to NetGalley and Sapere Books for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my review.
