Summary
The Kingmaker's Daughter is the gripping story of the daughters of the man known as the 'Kingmaker, ' Richard, Earl of Warwick: the most powerful magnate in fifteenth century England. Without a son and heir, he uses his two daughters as pawns in the political games and they grow up to be influential players in their own right. In this novel, her first sister story since The Other Boleyn Girl, Philippa Gregory explores the lives of two fascinating young women. At the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne grows from a delightful child to become ever more fearful and desperate when her father makes war on his former friends. Still only a girl she is married and then left widowed and fatherless, with her mother in sanctuary and her sister married to the enemy. She manages her own escape by marrying Richard, Duke of Gloucester, but her choice will set her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family, and will cost the lives of those she loves most in the world, including her precious only son, Prince Edward. Ultimately, the kingmaker's daughter will achieve her father's greatest ambition
