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)

"Plaidy excels at blending history with romance and drama" ( New York Times)

"Full-blooded, dramatic, exciting" ( Observer)

Book Description:

The fourth book in Jean Plaidy's epic Plantagenet series
