QUEEN OF THE NORTH


QUEEN OF THE NORTH

ANNE O'BRIEN    Book Number: 86104    Product format: Hardback

Descendants of King Edward III and the Mortimer family's claim to the English throne and the Percy and Mortimer family trees begin this magnificent quest for one woman to turn history on its head. To those around her she was a loyal subject. In her heart, she was a traitor. 1399, and 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. The author cleverly intertwines the personal and political in a gripping story of love, heartache and intrigue. 469 pages with fairly large print.
