Product description

Review

'Amy Licence has given us an insight into the life of a prominent and significant leader during the Wars of the Roses. That she was a woman explains why this glance is so rare and so valuable. As mother of the three sons of York Edward, George and Richard she helped put two kings of England on the throne. As grandmother of the Princes in the Tower she was present at the greatest mystery in English history. Nicknamed the Rose of Raby for her famous beauty, she was the loving and loyal wife of the York lord who started the Wars of the Roses. This is a considered and scholarly account of the matriarch of the House of York.' --Philippa Gregory

'A long overdue biography of one of the most dramatic medieval heroines vivid, very readable, and wonderfully detailed' --Sarah Gristwood, author of Blood Sisters: The Women Behind the Wars of the Roses

'We have long needed a full-length biography of one of England s most famous medieval queens, the story of whose life spans the entire tumult of the Wars of the Roses. Licence s work is a readable and engaging portrait of life at the centre of power during a remarkable age, filled with detail that brings Cecily Neville and her age to life.' --Chris Skidmore, author of Bosworth: The Birth of the Tudors
