A novel by

 
 
When beautiful cloth merchant's daughter Elizabeth Williams is widowed at the age of 22, she is determined to succeed in the business she has learned from her father. But many are opposed to a woman making her own way in the world, and Elizabeth could have powerful enemies - enemies who know the truth about her late husband.

Then Elizabeth meets kindly, ambitious merchant turned lawyer Thomas Cromwell. Their marriage is based on mutual love and respect...but it isn't easy being the wife of an influential, headstrong man in Henry VIII's London. The city is filled with ruthless people and strange delights - and Elizabeth must adjust to the life she has chosen or risk losing everything.
