Within the Fetterlock by Brian Wainwright
The cognizance of the House of York was a Falcon, enclosed within a Fetterlock...
The year is 1396. King Richard II is childless — the succession to the English throne is in doubt.
When the rebellious Henry of Lancaster returns from exile in France in a bid to claim the throne, Constance of York is threatened on all sides. Closely related to both the King and Henry of Lancaster, she is drawn into intrigues as her husband and her brother jostle with their Lancastrian and Mortimer cousins in the race for supremacy.
"Brian (Wainwright) is a prodigiously talented author who brings to vibrant life the characters and complex political events of an often overlooked era of British history. I think his characterisation is wonderful, as is his detail and scene setting. The sights, sounds, smells etc of the 14thC just blaze to life."
—Elizabeth Chadwick, author of The Winter Mantle
