In 1461 a teenage Edward IV won a battle in the Welsh marches to secure the English throne for the house of York. The War of the Roses fractured England for more than thirty years and Thomas Penn brings us these turbulent years of betrayal, backstabbing and paranoia in vivid detail as power shifted between three powerful and talented brothers only to be snatched away by a new usurper, Henry Tudor.
Thomas Penn‘s first book The Winter King was chosen as a Book of the Year by numerous publications and we look forward to hearing more of The Brothers York.
‘Here, the three York brothers spring to ferocious life, and you need strong nerves to meet them. With insight and skill, Penn cuts through the thickets of history to find the heart of these heartless decades.’
