About this book

Excerpt from The King's Scapegoat

T hasbeenwdthat thefirstthirdoiaman's liieisthesowing, theseoondthegrowing. And the last the mowing, but with seedtime this story has nothing to do. The first more than twenty years of life may be brushed aside. It is enough that in them I lost htat, my father; then, fifteen years later. My mother; and for three years had been my own master; if a man could call himself his own who was the slave and worship of his mother's nurse and his father's squire. The story then begins on a late Spring day in 1483.
