A Court of Betrayal
ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR…
The Welsh Marches, 1301
Heiress Joan de Geneville is married to Roger Mortimer, son and heir of the notable Marcher Lord family. Yet what appears to be a successful marriage soon sees Roger Mortimer in flight into exile and Joan forced into lengthy captivity.
Roger’s return brings no respite. Joan finds herself swept up into a world of treacherous court politics and dangerous secrets as her husband deposes Edward II and rules England with Queen Isabella.
When Roger is accused of treason, she must survive catastrophic events in her fight for justice – with her life, and the lives of her children, hanging in the balance…
Will she pay for her husband’s outrageous ambitions, or will she manage to escape from a terrible fate?
‘A fantastically gripping story of love and betrayal, told with the masterful skill of a passionate storyteller. It kept me riveted until the last page!’
