Description
In a tumultuous era marked by peril and intrigue, reversals of fortune and violent deaths, the passions of a few rule the destiny of England and change the course of history.

Based on history, this acclaimed trilogy recounts the life of alleged villain Richard III in fifteenth century England. Like Romeo and Juliet, Richard of Gloucester and Lady Anne Neville are bound by love and swept apart by a family feud. When civil war erupts, Anne's father, the Kingmaker, forces her to wed Edward of Lancaster. Edward is slain in battle and the young lovers expect to marry. Instead, they encounter another devastating obstacle that threatens to part them forever.

This tale of love and war, tragedy and ultimate triumph is the prize-winning debut that launched Sandra Worth's career. It claims five of the fifteen awards and prizes she has won.
