War ravages England in 1464 during a blood feud between the House of York and the House of Lancaster over who is the country's true king.

  • Adapted from three overlapping page-turners by the prolific Philippa Gregory, this enjoyably propulsive high melodrama replays the classic Wars of the Roses family feud (York vs. Lancaster) from the perspective of the women who are both pawns and players in a violent, turbulent game of claiming and keeping the English throne. show more
