THE COMPELLING NOVEL FROM SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER PHILILPPA GREGORY

'Margaret's story is shocking, deeply moving... the depiction of Henry VIII's transformation from indulged golden boy to sinister tyrant is perfect pitched' Sunday Express

They trust her to watch the House of Tudor rise... Only she knows it will fall.

Heir to the Plantagenets, Margaret Pole, is a rival claimant to the Tudor throne. Buried in marriage to a loyal Tudor supporter, she becomes guardian to Arthur, the young Prince of Wales, and his beautiful bride, Katherine of Aragon.

But her destiny is not for a life in the shadows. Tragedy throws Margaret into poverty, yet the king's death restores her to a place at young Henry VIII's court, as a lady in waiting to Queen Katherine.

As the Tudor court sours, Margaret has to choose between her allegiance to the increasingly tyrannical King Henry, or to her friend, his abandoned queen. And Margaret is hiding a deadly secret... that a curse was cast on the Tudor line, and she is watching it come to pass.

Praise for Philippa Gregory:

'Meticulously researched and deeply entertaining, this story of betrayal and divided loyalties is Gregory on top form' Good Housekeeping

'Gregory has popularised Tudor history perhaps more than any other living fiction writer... all of her books feature strong, complex women, doing their best to improve their lives in worlds dominated by men' Sunday Times

'Engrossing' Sunday Express

'Popular historical fiction at its finest, immaculately researched and superbly told' The Times
