One of the biggest killers in history is back...and looking for victims. A 14th Century corpse is unearthed in the name of science, bringing with it a punishing legacy. Dormant underground for hundreds of years, the plague has grown stronger than ever. Once set free, it never sleeps and it takes no prisoners. Archaeologists released it. Neither doctors, the police nor the army can stop it. Only one man can fight the new Black Death. To win, he must escape the clutches of crazed vigilantes, hell bent on executing him in the name of humanity, and survive not one but two nightmare journeys to salvation. This Son of York gives an uncompromising portrayal of modern-day York's trial by pestilence. The accuracy of detail within is just as uncompromising and as unrelenting as the story being told. Will York ever return to normality? The answer lies in This Son Of York's gritty narrative.

History tells us that the intelligent, wealthy, and powerful Margaret of York had everything any woman could want, except for love. The acclaimed author of A Rose for the Crown takes us between the lines of history and into her heart. It is 1461: Edward, son of Richard of York, ascends to the throne, and his willful sister, Margaret, immediately becomes a pawn in European politics as Edward negotiates her marriage. The young Margaret falls deeply in love with Anthony Woodville, the married brother of Edward's queen, Elizabeth. But Edward has arranged for his sister to wed Charles, son of the Duke of Burgundy, and soon Margaret is setting sail for her new life. Her official escort: Anthony Woodville. Margaret of York eventually commanded the respect and admiration of much of Europe, but it appears to history that she had no emotional intimate. Anne Easter Smith's rare gift for storytelling and her extensive research reveal the love that burned at the center of Margaret's life, adding a new dimension to the story of one of the fifteenth century's most powerful women.

Lancaster Against York

The Wars of the Roses and the Foundation of Modern Britain

Author: Trevor Royle

Publisher: St. Martin's Press

ISBN: 0230613691

Category: History

Page: 368

View: 6964

In this sweeping history, Trevor Royle details one of the bloodiest episodes in British history. The prize was the crown of England, and the players were the rival houses of Lancaster and York. The dynastic quarrel threatened the collapse of the monarchy as a succession of weak rulers failed to deal with an overzealous aristocracy, plunging England into a series of violent encounters. The bloody battles and political intrigue between the rival heirs of King Edward III brought forth one of the most dynamic ruling families of England--the Tudors.
