An Evening with Annie Garthwaite, best selling author of CecilyNorthumberland writer Caro Giles

We’re delighted to welcome Annie Garthwaite back to DRAKE, with her new novel, and follow-up to Cecily, the King’s Mother.

With energy and ambition, The King’s Mother takes us from the Wars of the Roses to the dawn of the Tudor age – and tells the story of those era-defining wars through the eyes of
four women who shaped and suffered them.
Cecily Neville – King’s Mother
Marguerite of Anjou – deposed Queen
Elizabeth Woodville – betrayed wife
Margaret Beaufort – mother to an exiled son.
