Using original documents and extracts from medieval chronicles, this novel tells the story of the rise of the Tudor dynasty, from Lancastrian defeat at the battle of Towton, to Henry Tudor's victory at Bosworth Field. It is also the story of Margaret Beaufort, who as history progresses moves from being a peripheral figure, dominated by political power games, to a key player. Separated from her son in his infancy, she takes increasingly dangerous steps to get him back - ultimately orchestrating a series of rebellions against Richard III, and becoming implicated in the deaths of the Princes in the Tower. Devoted mother, or ruthless and dangerous manipulator? This book presents the evidence of the time.
