An emotional tale based on historical fact imagining the impact of King George III's madness on the lives of his wife and daughters   London 1788: the calm order of Queen Charlotte's court is shattered by screams. The King of England is going mad. Left alone with 13 children and with the country at war, Charlotte has to fight to hold her husband's throne. It is a time of unrest and revolutions but most of all Charlotte fears the King himself, someone she can no longer love or trust. She has lost her marriage to madness and there is nothing she can do except continue to do her royal duty. Her six daughters are desperate to escape their palace asylum.

About the Author:

Laura Purcell recently appeared on the PBS documentary The Secrets of Henry VIII's Palace, talking about Queen Caroline's life at Hampton Court. Her novels explore the lives of royal women during the Georgian era, who have largely been ignored by modern history. Queen of Bedlam was originally self-published as God Save the King.

Review:

Queen of Bedlam is a masterfully written and well-researched novel written by someone who has truly mastered the craft of evoking readers’ emotions.” —Historical Novels Review
