Epitaph for Three Women : (Plantagenet Saga) Paperback

Part of the Plantagenet Saga series


On the death of Henry the fifth, a nine-month-old baby is made King of England.

Ambitious men surround the baby king, including his two uncles, the Dukes of Bedford and Gloucester.

Shrewd and clever, Bedford seeks to uphold all his late brother had won and preserve it for young Henry the sixth.

Gloucester, a man of poor judgment, greedy for wealth and power, has other ideas.

In Lancastrian England and war-torn France, there are three women whose lives are to have a marked effect on the future.

Katherine de Valois, haunted by an unhappy childhood, finds love in an unexpected quarter and founds the Tudor dynasty; Joan of Arc leaves her village pastures on the command of heavenly voices; and Eleanor of Gloucester is drawn into a murder plot and becomes the centre of a cause celebre.

Murder, greed and ambition flourish alongside sacrifice, dedication and courage.

These are turbulent times as the defeated become the victorious...
