A retelling of the love story between Richard of York and Anne Neville, whose lives where punctuated by the violence of the fifteenth-century Wars of the Roses in England. Anne's family, the Nevilles, played a prominent role in the conflict and the family shifted in their loyalties and made alliances with both sides. Anne is portrayed as a victim of these shifting alliances as she is torn away from her childhood friend Richard of York and married to his rival Edward of Lancaster. A good story and recounting of the early tale of Richard and Anne.
