Thwarted Queen is volume 3 of the THWARTED QUEEN series. This tale of Richard of York’s political career, and its tragic impact upon his wife Cecylee, will intrigue readers who enjoy political biography.
The rambunctious Londoners are unhappy that their country has become mired in misrule due to the ineptitude of a King prone to fits of madness. Nor are they better pleased by the attempts of the King’s French wife to maneuver herself into power, especially as she was responsible for England’s losses in France.
But can Richard and Cecylee prevail? Everywhere, their enemies lurk in the shadows.
Set during the end of the Hundred Years War and the beginning of the Wars of the Roses we see Richard inherit the political mantle of his mentor Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, and become the people’s champion.
