Number 1 bestselling author Philippa Gregory continues her series, The Cousins' War, with Jacquetta Woodville, mother of the White Queen 'I have lost my father in battle, my sister to Elizabeth Woodville's spy, my brother-in-law to Elizabeth Woodville's executioner, my nephew to her poisoner, and now my son to her curse...' The gripping and ultimately tragic story of Anne Neville and her sister Isabel, the daughters of the Earl of Warwick, the most powerful magnate in England through the Cousins' Wars. In the absence of a son and heir, he ruthlessly uses the two girls as pawns but they, in their own right, are thoughtful and powerful actors. Against the backdrop of the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne turns from a delightful child growing up in intimacy and friendship with the family of Richard Duke of York to become ever more fearful and desperate as her father's enemies turn against her, the net closes in and there is, in the end, simply nowhere she can turn, no one she can trust with her life. * 'Popular historical fiction at its finest, immaculately researched and superbly told' The Times * 'The contemporary mistress of historical crime' Kate Mosse * 'Gregory at her engrossing, exhilarating, enlightening best'' Good Housekeeping

Destined for the King is a true story turned to fiction of how a young innocent teenage girl was forced out of school by the events of a civil war that erupted in her country, Nigeria. In her time, formal education for the female child was a mirage. Her father, an astute politician, took exception to this norm, but the civil war threatened his perspective. Uju averted every attempt to be married off into polygamy during the civil war. She went through dangerous, mind-blowing experiences to avert this dilemma. Most of her counterparts were not so fortunate. She went back to school after the devastation. Through so many challenges, she became a university graduate, and a divinely orchestrated chain of events saw her through to the throne—a queen of an ancient kingdom. The book mirrors the struggles of a young girl who was determined to succeed at all cost. The colorful presentation of the village, school, and urban life makes it a delightful read for all ages and times.
