"For fans of Hilary Mantel and The Tudors, this is the dramatic story of the concluding episode in England's War of the Roses, featuring three brothers, two of whom became kings, Edward IV and Richard III, famous from Shakespeare's great history play Richard III."--,Provided by publisher.
15th-century England. Two royal families, the House of York and the House of Lancaster, fought a bitter, decades-long civil war for the English throne. The house of York came to dominate England. At its heart were three charismatic brothers: King Edward IV, and his two younger siblings George and Richard. The three became the figureheads of a spectacular ruling dynasty. Together, they looked invincible. Penn shows that with Edward’s ascendancy the brothers began to turn on one another, unleashing a catastrophic chain of rebellion, vendetta, fratricide, usurpation, and regicide, finally coming to a brutal end at Bosworth Field in 1485. It is a rich and bloody tale as gripping as any historical fiction. -- adapted from jacket
