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 as God Save the King, receiving excellent reviews as an Amazon bestseller in biographical fiction. Laura writes a history blog at www.laurapurcell.com
