Cecily Neville is England’s greatest medieval matriarch. Born in the year of Agincourt, she lived into the early years of the Tudors, built a dynasty, mothered two kings (Edward IV and Richard III) and led her family through civil war.
Reading from her acclaimed novel, Annie will reveal Cecily in all her complex glory: A dynastic schemer and a political mover and shaker; a strategist and politician. But also, a wife and mother, who loved fiercely, lost children in infancy and to war and outlived her royal sons.
