Blood Sisters

(2012)
A non fiction book by

 
 
To contemporaries, the Wars of the Roses were known collectively as a cousins war." The series of dynastic conflicts that tore apart the ruling Plantagenet family in fifteenth-century England was truly a domestic drama, as fraught and intimate as any family feud before or since. While the battles themselves were fought by men, a handful of powerful women would prove just as decisive as the clashing armies. As historian Sarah Gristwood reveals in Blood Sisters, these mothers, wives, and daughters were locked in a web of loyalty and betrayal that would ultimately bring down the Plantagenets and replace them with an obscure group of claimants: the Tudors.

In an epic narrative spanning generations and regimes, Gristwood offers a provocative reassessment of the Wars of the Roses, unveiling the courageous women who paved the way for a new English dynasty.
