Review:

"Jean Plaidy doesn't just write the history, she makes it come alive." -- Julia Moffat, RNA "This recaptures the colour and the lusty dishonesty of the French and English courts of the 16th century. Plaidy addicts will love it" Evening Standard "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 "Outstanding" Vanity Fair
