Cream Tea and Meet Annie Garthwaite, author of The King’s Mother and Cecily

October 14 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Our Cream Tea and Meet The Author Event with Annie Garthwaite author of The King’s Mother.


1461. Through blood and battle Edward has gained  England’s throne –  king by right and conquest – eighteen years old and unstoppable. Cecily has piloted his rise to power and stands at his shoulder now,  first to claim the title King’s Mother.   But to win a throne is not to  keep it and war is come again. As brother betrays brother, and trusted  cousins turn treacherous, other mothers rise up to fight for other sons. Cecily must focus her will to defeat every challenge. Wherever they come from. Whatever the cost.

For there can be only one King, and only one King’s Mother.   From  the Wars of the Roses to the dawn of the Tudor age, this is a story of  mothers and sons; of maternal ferocity and female ambition – of all they  can build and all they can destroy.
