A gripping new history by the author of the acclaimed bestseller Winter King It is 1461 and England is crippled by civil war. One freezing morning, a teenage boy wins a battle in the Welsh marches, and claims the crown. He is Edward IV, first king of the usurping house of York.

Thomas Penn’s remarkable new telling of the Wars of the Roses takes us inside a conflict which fractured the nation for more than three decades. The Brothers York brings to life a dynasty that could have been as magnificent as the Tudors went on to become. Its tragedy was that, in the space of one generation, it destroyed itself.

Join us for an enticing evening that opens a Pandora’s Box onto turbulent and breathtaking times. ‘Imagine Wolf Hall rewritten by John le CarrĂ©… gripping’ – Tom Holland  ‘Enthralling’ – Hilary Mantel
