20Th Century History: C 1900 To C 2000

Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick, is famously known as the Kingmaker. Being England's most authoritative magnate in the fifteenth century, he raises his daughters, Anne and Isabel, by using them as a means to achieve his political goals. The daughters become powerful players in their own right as they grow up. Anne becomes more fearful and desperate at the court of Edward IV and his graceful queen Elizabeth, when Richard starts waging war against his former alliances and friends. Anne's mother ends up in sanctuary and her sister Isabel is married off to an enemy. To find a way out, Anne marries the Duke of Gloucester. But the marriage also proves to be pricey, as the course of her life becomes overwhelmingly tough. Will she be able to sort out all the chaos whirling around her existence?
