Henry of the High Rock

(1971)
A novel by

 
For twenty-one years, William the Conqueror had ruled England with an iron fist but his sudden death leaves the country in turmoil. For his youngest son, Henry, life is set to become very precarious. As his elder brothers begin to divide up their father's lands in England and France, it becomes clear that conflict is inevitable and Henry, far from being insignificant, is a crucial pawn in the family power struggle. But with great power comes great danger, and Henry soon finds that he will need a woman's love and all his father's physical courage and political cunning if he is to survive and claim his place in the line of succession.

Henry of the High Rock, the second in Juliet Dymoke's epic Conqueror Trilogy, is a powerful tale of political intrigue and courtly love at a time when the fate of England hung in the balance.
