Alison Weir, Sunday Times-bestselling author of the Six Tudor Queens series, returns with a captivating new trio of novels spanning three generations of history’s most iconic family, the Tudors.
Mother. Survivor. Queen.
The spellbinding story of Elizabeth of York, the first Tudor queen.
An English princess, born into a war between two families.
Eldest daughter of the royal House of York, Elizabeth dreams of a crown to call her own. But when her beloved father, King Edward, dies suddenly, her destiny is rewritten.
Her family’s enemies close in. Two young princes are murdered in the Tower. Then her uncle seizes power – and vows to make Elizabeth his queen.
But another claimant seeks the throne, the upstart son of the rival royal House of Lancaster. Marriage to this Henry Tudor would unite the white rose of York and the red of Lancaster – and change everything.
A great new age awaits. Now Elizabeth must choose her allies – and husband – wisely, and fight for her right to rule.
Praise for Alison Weir:
‘Katheryn emerges from the pages of this beautifully realised portrayal as beguiling, vivacious and, in the end, tragically naive . . .This novel will captivate you and break your heart. Utterly sublime. For the first time I felt as though, thanks to Alison’s skilful writing and storytelling, I came to “know” Katharine. The book is utterly exceptional and beautifully crafted, with a keen eye for detail – solid gold for Tudor history lovers’ – Nicola Tallis
‘Weir demonstrates her deep knowledge of the period offering fascinating detail on all aspects of Tudor life. . .It is a profoundly moving story that lingers long after the last page is turned. Alison’s sensitively drawn novel will change everyone’s preconceptions. This is a detailed and convincing portrait of an extraordinary life. Taken as a whole, this series is a serious achievement’ – The Times
‘This masterly novel seamlessly blends history into the story’s fabric. A superb read and a remarkable end to a brilliant series’ – Historical Novel Society
