Cecily : An epic feminist retelling of the War of the Roses, Annie Garthwaite


431 is a dangerous time for a woman to be defiant. England has been fighting France for 100 years. At home, power-hungry men within a corrupt government manipulate a weak king - and name Cecily's husband, York's loyal duke, an enemy.

As the king's grasp on sanity weakens, plots to destroy York take root... It will take all of Cecily's courage and cunning to save her family. But when the will to survive becomes ambition for a crown, will she risk treason to secure it?Inside closed bedchambers and upon bloody battlefields, CECILY portrays war as women fight it.
