Description

The best-selling novel about the queen who founded the Tudor dynasty. `A bewitching first novel...alive with historical detail' Good Housekeeping.


Her beauty fuelled a war.
Her courage captured a king.
Her passion would launch the Tudor dynasty.


When her own first child is tragically still-born, the young Mette is pressed into service as a wet-nurse at the court of the mad king, Charles VI of France. Her young charge is the princess, Catherine de Valois, caught up in the turbulence and chaos of life at court.


Mette and the child forge a bond, one that transcends Mette's lowly position.
But as Catherine approaches womanhood, her unique position seals her fate as a pawn between two powerful dynasties. Her brother, The Dauphin and the dark and sinister, Duke of Burgundy will both use Catherine to further the cause of France.


Catherine is powerless to stop them, but with the French defeat at the Battle of Agincourt, the tables turn and suddenly her currency has never been higher. But can Mette protect Catherine from forces at court who seek to harm her or will her loyalty to Catherine place her in even greater danger?
