"The Queen of Last Hopes is an inspiring novel of a woman who, in the face of betrayal and loss, would not surrender. Susan Higginbotham brings Margaret of Anjou to life and tells the story of the Frenchwoman who was one of the strongest queens England has ever known." -Christy English, author of The Queen's Pawn and To Be Queen
Bringing this literary staple to the modern world, SourceBooks announces a new audiobook release, narrated by Nicole Quinn.
Story synopsis:

A man other than my husband sits on England's throne today.  What would happen if this king suddenly went mad? What would his queen do? Would she make the same mistakes I did, or would she learn from mine?” 
Margaret of Anjou, queen of England, cannot give up on her husband-even when he slips into insanity. And as mother to the House of Lancaster's last hope, she cannot give up on her son-even when England turns against them. This gripping tale of a queen forced to stand strong in the face of overwhelming odds is at its heart a tender tale of love.
As the narrator explains, “Margaret’s is an important story, she’s a woman at the center of history, not a common occurrence.  She’s the daughter and granddaughter of women who put on armor, a woman who’d been raised to believe it was her obligation to protect her family.

“As evidenced by the customer reviews on Good Reads, Amazon, and blogs, not just women respond to this title.”

The audiobook is available now on Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
