The Silken Rose (2019)
(Rose Trilogy , book 1)
"The Silken Rose dives into 13th Century England with the relish of a peregrine's stoop. With the tastiest morsels of quail and the tiniest golden embroidery stitch, the novel steeps the reader in the life of a medieval court. Barons fight, families quarrel and children succumb to untreatable ailments. It s all there in the life of Queen Ailenor of Provence, the spirited wife of King Henry the Third. Temptation for any fan of scheming behind the arras and swooning courtly love!"
