  • A startling heroine

    Sarah Moss
  • Cecily stalks the corridors of power like a female Thomas Cromwell. A vividly female perspective on the Wars of the Roses - what a feat

    Imogen Hermes Gowar, author of THE MERMAID AND MRS HANCOCK
  • An extraordinary achievement . . .I could touch and breathe Cecily's world as if I was walking in her shadow

    Carol McGrath
  • CECILY is the WOLF HALL for the 2020s... marks the start of a stellar career

    Manda Scott
  • I loved it . . . Annie Garthwaite writes about the past with a kind of restrained, earthy vim, and with the sort of intimacy and immediacy - and empathy - that can only come from graft and craft

    Toby Clements
  • A stunning debut. Cecily is an unforgettable heroine... a novel about the power and resourcefulness of women

    Susan Elliott-Wright
  • An intimate, vivid, and compulsively page turning retelling of the Wars of the Roses. At the centre of it all is Cecily herself - ferocious to her enemies, loving to her family, both cannily pragmatic and willing to take the greatest of risks for the greatest of prizes

    Tim Leach
  • Like Mantel's work, Garthwaite's memorable book leaps beyond its genre of historical fiction. Garthwaite writes with empathy and a brilliant eye for historical detail. This book is a winner--don't miss it!

    Pamela Petro
  • Vivid and compelling

    J L Laynesmith
  • A bold, beautiful novel

    Eleanor Dymott
