The thrilling climax to the Anne trilogy: the world of Philippa Gregory’s White Queen is seen from the point of view of her greatest rival.
As England tears itself apart in the War of the Roses, Anne de Bohun lives far from the intrigues of cities and courts.
Once King Edward IV’s mistress, Anne has found safety with their son in far-away Flanders. But now Edward himself is a hunted fugitive, and Anne’s real father, King Henry VI rules again from Westminster.
Summoned by an enigmatic message from her lover, Anne is drawn once more to the passion, the excitement and the deadly danger that Edward brings into her life. But now, the girl who was once a penniless servant has a child to protect and an inheritance to defend.
Can she let her love for Edward threaten everything she has? Or will she need his help to protect her from the powerful enemy who means to destroy her?
