Description

THWARTED QUEEN is the third in a series of four books about Cecylee Neville (1415-1495), mother of Richard III and Edward IV, Queen by Right and Abbess. The tale of Richard of York's political career, and its tragic impact upon his wife Cecylee, will intrigue readers who enjoy political novels. It is 1445, and Cecylee is turning thirty. She and Richard are waiting for the new Queen of England to arrive from Paris. Everyone remarks on how close the Yorks are. Theirs seems a successful marriage, for Cecylee is constantly at her husband's side, providing him with political counsel as well as comfort. But matters are not as happy as they seem. Richard takes revenge by marrying their eldest daughter Nan off when she is only seven. This decision costs Cecylee her happiness. This book is filled with many voices, not least those of the Londoners, who forged their political destiny by engaging in public debate with the powerful aristocrats of the time. By their courageous acts, these fifteenth-century Londoners set the stage for American Democracy.show more
