A collection of family letters and documents spanning three generations of a Norfolk family during the period when England was on the cusp of medieval and modern history (and divided by the Wars of the Roses). Both a picture of everyday life and a portrayal of a family on the fringes of great events. Edited into accessible English, and illustrated to relate the people to the places where they lived. An altogether beautiful job. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
