Synopsis

1399: England’s crown is under threat. King Richard II holds onto his power by an ever-weakening thread, with exiled Henry of Lancaster back to reclaim his place on the throne.For Elizabeth Mortimer, there is only one rightful King – her eight-year-old nephew, Edmund. Only he can guarantee her fortunes, and protect her family’s rule over the precious Northern lands bordering Scotland.But many, including Elizabeth’s husband, do not want another child-King. Elizabeth must hide her true ambitions in Court, and go against her husband’s wishes to help build a rebel army.To question her loyalty to the King places Elizabeth in the shadow of the axe.To concede would curdle her Plantagenet blood.This is one woman’s quest to turn history on its head.

About the author

Anne O'Brien

After gaining a B.A. Honours degree in History at Manchester University and a Masters degree in education at Hull, Anne O'Brien lived in Yorkshire as a teacher of history. Always a prolific reader, she enjoyed historical fiction and was encouraged to try her hand at writing. Leaving teaching - but not her love of history - she wrote her first historical romance, a Mills & Boon Regency novel published in 2005. Anne now lives with her husband in an eighteenth century timber-framed cottage in the depths of Herefordshire, a wild, beautiful place on the borders between England and Wales, renowned for its black and white timbered houses, ruined castles, priories and magnificent churches.
