Description

An innocent pawn 

A kingdom without a king 

A new dynasty will reign... 

1415. The jewel in the French crown, Katherine de Valois, is waiting under lock and key for King Henry V. While he's been slaughtering her kinsmen in Agincourt, Katherine has been praying for marriage to save her from her misery. But the brutal king wants her crown, not her innocent love. 

For Katherine, England is a lion's den of greed, avarice and mistrust. And when she is widowed at twenty-one, she becomes a prize ripe for the taking--her young son the future monarch, her hand in marriage worth a kingdom. 

This is a deadly political game, one the dowager queen must learn fast. The players--the Duke of Gloucester, Edmund Beaufort and Owen Tudor--are circling. Who will have her? Who will ruin her? This is the story of Katherine de Valois. 

 

"Anne O'Brien has joined the exclusive club of excellent historical novelists."  --Sunday Express 

"An absolutely gripping tale that is both superbly written and  meticulously researched."  --The Sun
