Bastard-born but cherished daughter of King
John, Joanna becomes a political pawn when her adored father arranges her
marriage to Llewelyn Prince of Gwynedd, Wales, his bitter foe. The young bride
is a stranger in a hostile land, married to a man she does not know. Until she
comes to love her brilliant husband, leader of men, and passionate opponent to
the English laws that chain his homeland. And as bloody wars break out once more
between England and Wales, Joanna is caught in the crossfire of fatal enmity,
her loyalties cruelly divided between her father and the man she loves.
The battle-torn land could not be more ravaged than her troubled, turbulent
heart, and in a moment of confused, guilty passion that she will never forget,
Joanna risks her peace of mind, her freedom ... even her life.
This sweeping saga of true events in the thirteenth century, beginning Sharon
Penman's magnificent trilogy of England and Wales, is a tangled, tempestuous
story of power and passion, loyalty and lies ...
