The Kingmaker's Daughter

Philippa Gregory

In Gregory’s latest in her Cousins’ War series about England's War of the Roses (after the Lady of the Rivers, 2011), Anne Neville and her sister Isabel are daughters of the Earl of Warwick, known as “The Kingmaker.” The earl had long hoped that King Edward IV would marry one of his daughters, but Edward marries the commoner Elizabeth Woodville instead. The Kingmaker then plots for another ruler in a scheme that has future political repercussions for both sisters.
