Trapped in an abusive marriage, Henrietta Howard stakes everything on a new life in Hanover with its royal family, heirs to the British throne. Her beauty and intelligence win her the friendship of clever Princess Caroline and her mercurial husband, Prince George--but friendship is the last thing on the hot-blooded prince's mind. Whatever George's shortcomings, Princess Caroline is determined to make the family a success. Yet the feud between her husband and his obstinate father threatens all she has worked for. As England erupts in Jacobite riots, her family falls apart. She vows to save the country for her children to inherit--even if it costs her pride and her marriage.
