The King's Sister

Author(s): Anne O'Brien


Elizabeth of Lancaster Sister. Wife. Traitor. One betrayal is all it takes to change history...June, 1380: Elizabeth Plantagenet - seventeen years old, spoilt, headstrong, fun-loving and intelligent - is about to be married. The Earl of Pembroke is an advantageous choice for all concerned, except Elizabeth, as the Earl is only eight years old. June, 1386: Scandalously pregnant by Sir John Holland, Duke of Exeter, whilst still married to the Earl, Elizabeth is hastily married again. As half-brother to King Richard II, Sir John is a man known to all for both his charm and self-interested scheming. Soon Elizabeth is drawn into the heart of a dangerous rebellion with her brother, King Henry IV, on one side, and her husband on the other. As tensions become a matter of life or death, Elizabeth is presented with an impossible choice of where to give her loyalty..."One of the best writers around...she outdoes even Philippa Gregory." - The Sun "Extremely compelling historical fiction." - Cosmopolitan "...packed with powerful emotions and tumultuous unfolding of an affair that changed the course of royal history, this is a novel in which to enjoy the past in all it rich colour and dramatic detail. .." - Lancashire Evening Post "Anne O'Brien has joined the exclusive club of excellent historical novelists." - Sunday Express
