Edmund Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, finds himself exiled in France when Warwick the Kingmaker puts Edward IV on the throne of England. Desperate to return the throne to the rightful King Henry VI, Beaufort finds himself caught between Henry's bitter wife Marguerite of Anjou and the French 'Spider' King Louis until Edward and Warwick fall out in spectacular style and, at Louis' urging, Warwick becomes their unlikely ally. Set on the rich stage of the Wars of the Roses, this is a tale of intrigue, love and war that can only end in tragedy.
About the Author
Philippa began writing when she was a child, illustrating her own handwritten books for the enjoyment of her friends and had her first short story published when she was ten. She started her first novel after her eldest daughter was born 27 years ago, writing when the baby was napping in the afternoon. Many rewrites and crises of confidence later it has evolved into Blood of the Red Rose and its 'coming soon' sequel Tears of the White Rose. Philippa has two daughters, four grandchildren and lives in Cyprus with Paul, her husband of twenty-two years, their two dogs and four cats.
