The Queen's Sister

(1974)
A novel by

 
 
It is 1485 and Richard III, the last Yorkist King of England, lies dead upon the battlefield of Bosworth, defeated by Henry Tudor. Henry has pledged himself to marry Richard's eldest niece, Elizabeth, a girl who loved her dead uncle in a manner which surpassed any normal affection. Now she is to become the unwilling, hate-filled bride of Richard's murderer. But she and her sixteen-year-old sister, Cicely, share a dangerous secret-the knowledge that their brothers, the 'Princes in the Tower', live, and they realize that Henry could not afford to spare the lives of two such great threats to his stolen throne. Cicely's sorrow and fear is twofold, for the man she loves is in the hands of the Tudor King. He is John of Gloucester, the illegitimate son of the dead King Richard. His life is almost certainly forfeit to the cold, merciless Henry. The new King of England has another husband in mind for the Queen's sister, a man he knows she detests...
