This was my first book by AES and it got me hooked, since this book I've read everything by her that I could get my hands on :) The book is absolutely amazing and Cecily is an unforgetable heroine!

Follows the evolving relationship between Cecily Neville and Richard, duke of York, and the struggle for wealth and power during the turbulent Plantagenet period. A strong female protagonist and a story rich in detail made for a very engrossing book.
