Henry VI, Part 3 is dominated by a struggle between two military forces, neither of which can achieve victory for long. Until the end, the Yorkists and Lancastrians strive for the English crown. The conflict between these two families began under Richard II. Half a century later, during the reign of Henry VI, it moved toward civil war. Now, in Henry VI, Part 3, Henry’s long reign becomes intermittent as his cousin Richard, Duke of York, seeks the crown and York’s son Edward sporadically succeeds in seizing it. As we watch the crown pass back and forth between Henry VI and Edward IV, our attention is caught by other characters: the Earl of Warwick, Queen Margaret, and Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Warwick is the power behind the challenge to Henry VI, until he shifts to Henry. Margaret raises an army in England and later leads one from France, all in a futile attempt to secure the throne for her son, Prince Edward. Historically, his death destroyed her, but Shakespeare wisely saves Margaret to bring her back in Richard III. Richard, Duke of Gloucester, increasingly draws our attention. Both attractive and repellent, he is energetic, self-aware, bitter about his deformity (which may not have existed historically), ruthless, and unable to care about others.

September Dove, a must read epic, begins in 1949 on the Texas\Mexican border. Adhering to the times, and with a ‘fifties’ spin on morality and work ethics, September Dove is heartwarming, sad, and humorous. Written in a narrative style that is refreshing, painfully honest, and almost primal. Gripping human experiences and bare-naked emotions are artfully exposed. An endearing storytelling triumph, that includes seldom revealed, but accurate, history lessons, from the ‘wetback’ camps of the era, to the authentic practices of a Central Texas working ranch. Seen through the eyes of a young, eccentric girl, Farley Marie Sebastian, this story, has it all, unforgettable characters, a strong, thought-provoking plot, adventure, action and ‘soul-deep’ love. You will bond with these people, and you will laugh and cry. Farley, a dusky beauty, is saddled with, yet strengthened by, her strict, ‘fundamental’, religious background. Plagued by many suitors, and due to a tragedy, she comes to consider her beauty a sinful curse, rather than a genetic blessing. The author clearly has an amazing grasp of humanity and remarkable descriptive abilities. The dreadful camp conditions, and the brutal ranch practices are poignantly vivid. Humor, action and interesting people and settings offer genderless appeal.
