Summary of the Book
The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the gripping tale of the daughters of the man known as the Kingmaker, Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick: the most powerful magnate in fifteenth-century England. Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games, and they grow up to be influential players in their own right.
At the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne grows from a delightful child to become ever more fearful and desperate when her father makes war on his former friends. Married at age fourteen, she is soon left widowed and fatherless, her mother in sanctuary and her sister married to the enemy. Anne manages her own escape by marrying Richard, Duke of Gloucester, but her choice will set her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.
Reviews of The Kingmaker’s Daughter
“Gregory … always delivers the goods. Her latest novel wraps up her ‘cousins’ war’ series of royal witches, philanderers and kingslayers with the story of King Richard III’s wife, Anne Neville, who went from the marital bed of one royal prince to that of another king-to-be during this long family feud.” (New York Post)
“Conspiracy and a fight to the death for love and power.” (Los Angeles Times)
“Gregory is one of historical fiction’s superstars, and The Kingmaker’s Daughter shows why. . . . providing intelligent escape, a trip through time to a dangerous past.” (Historical Novels Review)
