Summary
'The gripping tale of Elizabeth of Lancaster, sibling of Henry IV. Packed with love, loss and intrigue' - Sunday Express S Magazine ONE BETRAYAL IS ALL IT TAKES TO CHANGE HISTORY 1382. Daughter of John of Gaunt, sister to the future King Henry IV, Elizabeth of Lancaster has learned the shrewd tricks of the court from England's most powerful men. In a time of political turmoil, allegiance to family is everything. A Plantagenet princess should never defy her father's wishes. Yet headstrong Elizabeth refuses to bow to the fate of a strategic marriage. Rejecting her duty, Elizabeth weds the charming and ruthlessly ambitious Sir John Holland: Duke of Exeter, half-brother to King Richard II and the one man she has always wanted. But defiance can come at a price. 1399. Elizabeth's brother Henry has seized the throne. Her husband, confidant to the usurped Richard, masterminds a secret plot against the new King. Trapped in a dangerous web, Elizabeth must make a choice. Defy the King and betray her family. Or condemn her husband and send him to his death. SISTER. WIFE. TRAITOR. She holds the fate of England in her hands. Praise for Anne O'Brien: 'One of the best writers around...she outdoes even Philippa Gregory' - The Sun 'Her writing is highly evocative of the time period. ..O'Brien has produced an epic tale' - Historical Novel Society 'Anne O'Brien's novels give a voice to the "silent" women of history' - Yorkshire Post 'The gripping tale of Elizabeth of Lancaster, sibling of Henry IV. Packed with love, loss and intrigue' - Sunday Express S Magazine 'Once again O'Brien proves herself a medieval history magician, conjuring up a sizzling, sweeping story' - Lancashire Evening Post 'An exciting and intriguing story of love and historical politics. If you enjoy Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir you will love Anne O'Brien' - We Love This Book 'A brilliantly researched and well-told story; you won't be able to put this book down' - Candis 'A fast paced historical drama that is full of suspense.'
