Book excerpt: 'An author who makes history come gloriously alive' The Times 'Meticulous research and strong storytelling' Woman & Home 'A sumptuous ride' Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph ********************** Eleanor of Aquitaine A loving mother. A betrayed wife. A queen beyond compare. 1154 Eleanor of Aquitaine, one of the most powerful women in Europe, is crowned queen of England beside her young husband Henry II. While Henry battles their enemies and lays his plans, Eleanor is an adept acting ruler and mother to their growing brood of children. But she yearns for more than this - if only Henry would listen. Instead, Henry pushes Eleanor to the sidelines, involving himself with a young mistress and denying Eleanor her rightful authority. As matters reach a crisis, Eleanor becomes caught up in a family rebellion. And even a queen must face the consequences of treason... Award-winning author Elizabeth Chadwick continues the fascinating story of a queen fighting for her rightful place in a world of divided loyalties and passionate betrayals. The first and last books in this trilogy - The Summer Queen and The Autumn Throne - are available to buy NOW in paperback and ebook.

Her characters are beguiling and the story is intriguing and very enjoyable' Barbara Erskine 'Renowned historical novelist Chadwick tells this battle-of-the-sexes story from a woman's point of view' New York Post
