ELIZABETH OF YORK: A TUDOR QUEEN AND HER WORLD By Alison Weir
As the first Tudor queen and mother of the infamous Henry VIII, Elizabeth of York was a figure of key historical importance.

This is dramatic English history as only the New York Times bestselling author of Mary Boleyn can write it.

In Innocence, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with readers forever.
