`Gripping' The Times Her actions could make history - but at what price? 1399: Constance of York, Lady Despenser, proves herself more than a mere observer in the devious intrigues of her magnificently dysfunctional family, The House of York. Surrounded by power-hungry men, including her aggressively self-centred husband Thomas and ruthless siblings Edward and Richard, Constance places herself at the heart of two treasonous plots against King Henry IV. Will it be possible for this Plantagenet family to safeguard its own political power by restoring either King Richard II to the throne, or the precarious Mortimer claimant? Although the execution of these conspiracies will place them all in jeopardy, Constance is not deterred, even when the cost of her ambition threatens to overwhelm her. Even when it endangers her new-found happiness. With treason, tragedy, heartbreak and betrayal, this is the story of a woman ahead of her time, fighting for herself and what she believes to be right in a world of men. Giving voice to the forgotten women of history, this is the next brilliant historical novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Anne O'Brien. Praise for A Tapestry of Treason `A wonderful novel . . . a rich, gripping, enchanting read. Anne's vivid writing took me straight to the year 1400 and kept me wonderfully lost there throughout' Joanna Courtney Praise for Anne O'Brien `O'Brien cleverly intertwines the personal and political in this enjoyable, gripping tale' The Times `O'Brien is a terrific storyteller' Daily Telegraph `A gripping story of love, heartache and political intrigue' Woman & Home `Packed with drama, danger, romance and history ... the perfect reading choice for the long winter nights' The Press Association `A gripping historical drama' Bella

About the Author:

As a prolific reader and ex-history teacher, Anne O’Brien has been lucky to fulfil her ambition to write historical romances. Her first success was a 400 word love story about a garden for Mills & Boon – an auspicious start! Anne lives with her husband in an eighteenth-century cottage. It is a place that gives her much inspiration and many sources for her writing. Anne often makes time to visit old houses, gardens and priories to absorb atmosphere for her novels.
