[I have chosen to include this work in my Further Reading list because there are almost no full-length biographies of Anne Neville in existence and I did read it while writing this episode. However, I must caution any readers who choose to look in to this book as a result of it being listed here: while I respect Hicks as a scholar, he makes great leaps to judgment of character and motivation throughout and uses language with which I do not agree. I am not suggesting one needs to avoid it, as the background research is certainly solid, but I am saying to read it with a critical eye and not use it as your only source on Anne Neville's life.]
