Blood Sisters : The Women Behind the Wars of the Roses
by Sarah Gristwood




Overview -
" A] gem of a book . . . enlivened by incisive analysis, exquisite detail and an elegant and witty style." -- Alison Weir

The Wars of the Roses, which tore apart the ruling Plantagenet family in fifteenth-century England, was truly a domestic drama, as fraught and intimate as any family feud before or since. But as acclaimed historian Sarah Gristwood reveals, while the events of this turbulent time are usually described in terms of the men who fought and died seeking the throne, a handful of powerful women would prove just as decisive as their kinfolks' clashing armies. A richly drawn, absorbing epic, Blood Sisters reveals how women helped to end the Wars of the Roses, paving the way for the Tudor age -- and the creation of modern England.
