This book is chronologically first in the series on the Cousins' War. It tells the story of Jaquetta Rivers, Elizabeth Woodville. In terms of piecing together the history of the wars, it is necessary to read it in order to set the remainder of the group of books into sequence and explain how the past shows in present actions of some of the other women. Jaquetta Rivers was, herself, an interesting woman, so the book also introduces the reader to women's position in the period: strengths, weaknesses, tactics and strategies open to women . . . as well as the sense of the "numinous wondrous", which was widely shared in the population, and later showed up as accusations of witchcraft against the Woodville matriarch.

Hope you enjoy the book!
