Product description

Charlotte-Rose de la Force, exiled from the court of the Sun King Louis XIV, has always been a great teller of tales. Selena Leonelli, once the exquisite muse of the great Venetian artist Titian, is terrified of time. Margherita, trapped in a doorless tower and burdened by tangles of her red-gold hair, must find a way to escape. Three women, three lives, three stories, braided together in a compelling tale of desire, obsession and the redemptive power of love.

Review quote

'I so enjoyed Kate Forsyth's Bitter Greens: a fabulously tangled web of fairy tale and historical romance... Heartbreaking. Exquisitely sensual.' Essie Fox, author of The Somnambulist. 'History and fairy tale are richly entwined in this spellbinding story. Unputdownable!' Juliet Marillier, author of Daughter of the Forest
