Anne O’Brien’s “Virgin Widow" is set during the tumultuous reign of Edward IV, in the Wars of the Roses. The protagonist is Anne Neville, daughter of Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick, a man known as The Kingmaker. Although she was both
Princess of Wales and Queen of England in her lifetime (as Richard III's wife), the name Anne Neville does not mean much to people, but this book seeks to rectify this by telling her story, although in a fictional novel. A fabulous read that you won’t be able to put down, just don’t blame me when you stay up until all hours reading it!
