Life is made up of choices and which road we choose to take may be a pivotal decision that affects our whole life and others' lives too. We often wonder 'What if…?' when we think about our past and about history. This collection of short stories from over twenty talented authors explores some of the 'What ifs' associated with the Wars of the Roses. How would history have changed if one of the roads not travelled had been chosen instead?

This anthology explores some of these roads and includes most of the famous figures of the Wars of the Roses - Edward IV, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick the Kingmaker, Anne Neville, George of Clarence, Francis Lovell and, of course, Richard III to name just a few.

Wilson,.Michèle Schindler, Bernadette Lyons, Maria Grazia Leotta, Susan Lamb, Clare Anderson, Jennifer Bradley, Roslyn Ramona Brown, Joanna Kingswood Iddison, Lisl Madeleine and Kathy Kingsbury and Joanne herself.
