The Tapestry

(The third book in the Joanna Stafford series)
A novel by

Amid political betrayal and sexual intrigue in the court of Henry VIII, one woman fights for her very soul.

Whitehall 1540. After her Dominican priory in Dartford closed in Henry VIII's quest to overthrow the Catholic Church, Joanna resolves to live a quiet and honorable life weaving tapestries, shunning dangerous quests and conspiracies. But then she is summoned to Whitehall Palace, for her skill in weaving tapestries has drawn the King's attention.

Set in a world of royal ceremonial, banquets, feasts, tournaments, sea voyages, and the ever-present threat of the Tower, this thrilling tale finds Joanna in her most dangerous situation yet, as she attempts to decide what life she wants to live. Nun or wife, spy or subject, rebel or courtier: Joanna Stafford must finally choose.

"Nancy Bilyeau's passion for history infuses her books and transports us back to the dangerous world of Tudor England. Vivid characters and gripping plots are at the heart of this wonderful trilogy, and this third book will not fail to thrill readers. Warmly recommended!" - Alison Weir, author of "The Lady in The Tower"

"'The Tapestry' moves like a modern thriller whilst at the same time managing to conjure up a Tudor England that feels very real and authentic in all its intrigue, mystery and menace." - Simon Toyne, author of the Sanctus Trilogy

"Bilyeau's writing is effortless, vivid, gripping, and poignant, bringing Tudor England to life with sparkling zest. If you want to see the reformation from the side of the English people rather than the self-serving court, it is tough to do better." - Dominic Selwood, author of "The Sword of Moses"
