Annie Garthwaite’s follow-up novel to the critically-acclaimed Cecily. The King’s Mother continues the story. A timely, feminist retelling of The War of the Roses as seen through the eyes of four ruthless and determined women. Peeling back the layers of England’s bloodiest civil war, The King’s Mother explores how women – and mothers – are at the centre of Britain’s history.

1461. Through blood and battle Edward has gained England’s throne – king by right and conquest – eighteen years old and unstoppable. Cecily has piloted his rise to power and stands at his shoulder now, first to claim the title King’s Mother.

But to win a throne is not to keep it and war is come again. As brother betrays brother, and trusted cousins turn treacherous, other mothers rise up to fight for other sons. Cecily must focus her will to defeat every challenge. Wherever they come from. Whatever the cost.

For there can be only one King, and only one King’s Mother.

From the Wars of the Roses to the dawn of the Tudor age, this is a story of mothers and sons; of maternal ferocity and female ambition – of all they can build and all they can destroy.
