An Evening with Annie Garthwaite

4 September @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The brilliant Annie Garthwaite is returning to the shop to chat about her latest book and sign your copies of The King’s Mother.

We have been obsessed with Annie’s writing since ‘Cecily’, and simply can’t wait to hear all about ‘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.
