About the book
A sumptuous wedding feast, two advantageous marriages and a blessing from the golden king. When silk merchant John Lambert marries off his two beautiful daughters, their fortunes are set to change forever. Elder daughter Jane starts a notorious liaison with Edward IV, while her sister, Isabel, as the new silkweaver to the court, becomes privy to its most intimate secrets. Could they hold the keys to power in this time of uncertainty? Vanora Bennett brings to life a time of passions and politics, a time of turmoil and tension, a world in flux and a country up for grabs.

Fascinating insight into life in London and Westminster at that time in history, especially women’s role in the silk trade. Would have liked more depth, too many strands were touched on.
