London 1788. The calm order of Queen Charlotte s court is shattered by screams. The King of England is going mad. Left alone with thirteen 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. Their only chance lies in a good marriage, but no prince wants the daughter of a madman. They are forced to take love wherever they can find it, with devastating consequences.

The moving true story of George III s madness and the women whose lives it destroyed.

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

About the Author:

Laura Purcell lives in Colchester, the oldest recorded town in England. She met her husband working in Waterstones bookshop and they share their home with several pet guinea pigs. Laura is a member of the Historical Novel Society, The Society for Court Studies and Historic Royal Palaces. She recently appeared on the PBS documentary The Secrets of Henry VIII's Palace, talking about Queen Caroline's life at Hampton Court. Laura's novels explore the lives of royal women during the Georgian era, who have largely been ignored by modern history. Her debut Queen of Bedlam was originally self-published, receiving excellent reviews as an Amazon bestseller in biographical fiction. Laura writes a history blog at www.laurapurcell.com
