Description

“The best writer of medieval fiction currently around.” —Historical Novels Review Matilda, daughter of Henry I, knows that there are those who will not accept her as England’s queen when her father dies. But the men who support her rival Stephen do not know the iron will that drives her. Adeliza, Henry’s widowed queen and Matilda’s stepmother, is now married to a warrior who fights to keep Matilda off the throne. But Adeliza, born with a strength that can sustain her through heartrending pain, knows that the crown belongs to a woman this time. “I rank Elizabeth Chadwick with such historical novelist stars as Dorothy Dunnett and Anya Seton.” —Sharon Kay Penman, New York Times bestselling author of Devil’s Brood “Elizabeth Chadwick is to medieval England what Philippa Gregory is to the Tudors and the Stuarts, and Bernard Cornwell is to the Dark Ages.” —Books Monthly, UK
