The first in the bestselling Fortune's Wheel trilogy, from Germany's 'Queen of Historical Fiction'.
England, 1360: After the death of his father, the Earl of Waringham, twelve-year-old Robin runs away from his monastery school to work as a stable boy. As the son of a presumed traitor he has the status of a peasant, subjugated to the tyrannical whims of the nobility.
But Robin flees, and soon, alongside the charismatic Duke of Lancaster, he is fighting military campaigns, quashing revolts, scoring political triumphs - and meeting women, as dangerous as they are beautiful. As a young, incapable King leads England to the brink of disaster, Robin is suddenly confronted with his former arch enemy...
The Traitor's Son is an epic tale of love, loyalty and friendship in 14th-century England, from internationally bestselling author Rebecca Gable.
