Spies, poison, and curses surround her—is there anyone she can trust?

In The Kingmaker’s Daughter, #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory presents a novel of conspiracy and a fight to the death for love and power at the court of Edward IV of England.

The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the gripping story 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 sets her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family, costing the lives of those she loves most in the world, including her precious only son, Prince Edward. Ultimately, the Kingmaker’s daughter will achieve her father’s greatest ambition.

    " More difficult to keep track of all the characters than other books by this author, but still an interesting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lauri | 2/4/2014

    " Although I loved "The Other Bolyn Girl", I have not enjoyed some of Philippa Gregory's more recent books, so hadn't read any of the Cousins War series. I picked this one up since I've always been intrigued by the story of Richard and the nephews in the Tower and wasn't ever clear on the historical context of that event. I can't say this book really shed much light on that, but I did get a little more context on the time period before the Tudors came to rule. "
