Summary
In 1437, after years of regency, the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the English throne. His poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king - Henry depends on his closest men, Spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, to run his kingdom. Yet there are those, such as the Plantagenet Richard, Duke of York, who believe England must be led by a strong king if she is to survive. With England's territories in France under threat, and rumours of revolt at home, fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. With a secret deal struck for Henry to marry a young French noblewoman, Margaret of Anjou, those fears become all too real. As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or what can save the kingdom before it is too late?

Summary
When 22-year-old Henry VI, scion of the House of Lancaster, takes the throne of England in 1437, the rival House of York sees an opportunity to unseat the gentle, pious king known as "the Lamb." Especially once Henry agrees to trade certain British territories to France in exchange for a royal bride, Margaret of Anjou, and a truce between their constantly warring nations. This opening installment of the Wars of the Roses series combines the intricate dynastic politics of Sharon Kay Penman's historical sagas and the fast-paced, visceral military action of Bernard Cornwell's novels. -- Description by Gillian Speace
