About the Author:

Jean Plaidy, one of the pre-eminent authors of historical fiction for most of the twentieth century, is the pen name of the prolific English author Eleanor Hibbert, also know as Victoria Holt. Jean Plaidy's novels had sold more than 14 million copies worldwide by the time of her deah in 1993.

Review:

"Her novels are still very much to be enjoyed ... Any writer who can both educate and thrill a reader of any age deserves to be remembered and find new fans ... One only has to look at the TV/Media to see that the appetite for this kind of writing is still very much there" -- Matt Bates * WH Smith Travel * "Jean Plaidy doesn't just write the history, she makes it come alive." -- Julia Moffat, RNA "Miss Plaidy does full justice to the trials of Henry II's last years. The demands of the vast Angevin Empire, provide strong dramatic material which she handles with her usual skill." * Sunday Times * "These books are page-turners; they offer a wonderful way to learn about history, their heroines are smart, strong and in control of their destinies and their stories will remain with you for ever...They are a celebration of women's spirit throughout history." * Daily Express * "Full-blooded, dramatic, exciting" * Observer *
