Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spies, poison, and curses surround her.... Is there anyone she can trust?

The Kingmakers Daughter — Philippa Gregory's first sister story since The Other Boleyn Girl — is the gripping tale of the daughters of the man known as the Kingmaker, Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick: the most powerful magnate in fifteenth-century England. Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games, and they grow up to be influential players in their own right.

At the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne grows from a delightful child to become ever more fearful and desperate when her father makes war on his former friends. Married at age fourteen, she is soon left widowed and fatherless, her mother in sanctuary and her sister married to the enemy. Anne manages her own escape by marrying Richard, Duke of Gloucester, but her choice will set her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.

Review:

“The bonds of sisterhood infuse Gregory’s latest....The stakes are high as Anne and Isabel Neville, daughters of the earl of Warwick (‘The Kingmaker’), vie for their father’s favor and a chance at the throne....In addition to Gregory handling a complicated history, she convincingly details women’s lives in the 1400s and the competitive love between sisters.” Publishers Weekly

Review:

“Gregory returns with another sister act. The result: her best novel in years.” USA Today

Review:

The Kingmaker’s Daughter is Gregory in fine form....The Cousins' War...provides a rich setting for drama with its endless plots and conniving courtiers.” Associated Press

Review:

“Gregory...always delivers the goods. Her latest novel wraps up her ‘cousins' war’ series of royal witches, philanderers and kingslayers with the story of King Richard III's wife, Anne Neville, who went from the marital bed of one royal prince to that of another king-to-be during this long family feud.” New York Post

Review:

“From the queen of royal fiction comes a gripping 15th-century tale of the daughters of the man known as the ‘Kingmaker.'" San Antonio Express-News

Review:

“Conspiracy and a fight to the death for love and power.” Los Angeles Times

Review:

“Gregory is one of historical fiction’s superstars, and The Kingmaker’s Daughter shows why...providing intelligent escape, a trip through time to a dangerous past.” Historical Novels Review (Editor's Choice)

Review:

“Gregory delivers another vivid and satisfying novel of court intrigue, revenge, and superstition. Gregory’s many fans as well as readers who enjoy lush, evocative writing, vividly drawn characters, and fascinating history told from a woman’s point of view will love her latest work.” Library Journal

Review:

“It’s every man and woman for themselves in Gregory’s latest, which offers reliable royal entertainment." Booklist
