Ronald Welch’s Sun of York is set during the final years of the Wars of the Roses, the long struggle between the houses of York and Lancaster for the English throne.

Impoverished young aristocrat Owen Lloyd rides out with his father from the family’s run-down castle in the Welsh Marches to fight on the Yorkist side. He’s an angry young man, determined to reverse the family’s fortunes and take revenge on Sir John Turberville and his sons, who have laid claim to the Lloyds’ estate.

Brave and quick-thinking, Owen pursues his personal feud with the Turbervilles while at the same time distinguishing himself in battle and contributing to the victory of the Yorkist King Edward IV. He is introduced at Court, where he sees for the first time the enormous wealth of the City of London and is disillusioned by the cynical opportunism of those in power. Sun of York is a fascinating up-close picture of fifteenth-century politics – and an unexpected portrait of the future King Richard III. Finally, knighted and successful and with the family fortunes secured, Owen returns to Wales a wiser and more contented young man.
