An extraordinary woman. A legendary queen. In 1154, Elear of Aquitaine, one of the most powerful women in Europe, is crowned queen of England beside her young husband Henry II. While Henry battles their enemies and lays his plans, Elear is an adept acting ruler and mother to their growing brood of children. But she yearns for more than this - if only Henry would listen. Instead, Henry pushes Elear to the sidelines, involving himself with a young mistress and denying Elear her rightful authority. As matters reach a crisis, Elear becomes caught up in a family rebellion. And even a queen must face the consequences of treason...Award-winning author Elizabeth Chadwick continues the fascinating story of a queen fighting for her rightful place in a world of divided loyalties and passionate betrayals.
