  • A startling heroine

    Sarah Moss
  • In vigorous, direct prose Garthwaite grippingly resurrects a remarkable woman

    Sunday Times
  • Utterly compelling, this brilliant novel shines a light into a dark corner of our history and reclaims the voice and story of a powerful and forgotten woman. A phenomenal read. I loved it

    Liz Hyder, author of The Gifts
  • Has the new Hilary Mantel arrived?

    Sunday Telegraph
  • I look forward to hearing more from Annie Garthwaite and Cecily

  • Cecily is a vivid and compelling portrait of a formidable figure from the 15th century and a heroine for our times

    Big Issue
  • In Garthwaite's hands, Neville proves as Machiavellian, manipulative and era-defining as any man

  • 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
  • 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
