An antidode to literary cardboard cutouts.
The Nevills were a hugely powerful and important family in the middle decades of the 15th century. They saw the Wars of the Roses from both sides (Yorkist and Lancastrian), but mainly from their own. The Nevill men lived and died large and violently. The Nevill women married leading players on both sides. I’m hoping to present a point of view that goes beyond the one-dimensional stereotypes seen in a lot of historical fiction.
I’m also in the process of writing my own book, working title Nevill, that will follow the family through the reigns of four kings, though this isn’t primarily a blog about that. As I find things in my research, I will share them. There will also be the occasional update, tantrum, sulk etc etc etc.
I hope you enjoy.
