'The gripping tale of Elizabeth of Lancaster, sibling of Henry IV. Packed with love, loss and intrigue' - Sunday Express S Magazine One betrayal is all it takes to change history 1382. Daughter of John of Gaunt, sister to the future King Henry IV, Elizabeth of Lancaster has learned the shrewd tricks of the court from England's most powerful men. In a time of political turmoil, allegiance to family is everything. A Plantagenet princess should never defy her father's wishes. Yet headstrong Elizabeth refuses to bow to the fate of a strategic marriage. Rejecting her duty, Elizabeth weds the charming and ruthlessly ambitious Sir John Holland: Duke of Exeter, half-brother to King Richard II and the one man she has always wanted. But defiance can come at a price. 1399. Elizabeth's brother Henry has seized the throne. Her husband, confidant to the usurped Richard, masterminds a secret plot against the new King. Trapped in a dangerous web, Elizabeth must make a choice. Defy the King and betray her family. Or condemn her husband and send him to his death. Sister. Wife. Traitor. She holds the fate of England in her hands. Praise for Anne O'Brien 'O'Brien cleverly intertwines the personal and political in this enjoyable, gripping tale.' - The Times 'A gem of a subject ...O'Brien is a terrific storyteller' - Daily Telegraph 'Joanna of Navarre is the feisty heroine in Anne O'Brien's fast-paced historical novel The Queen's Choice.' -Good Housekeeping 'A gripping story of love, heartache and political intrigue.' -Woman & Home 'Packed with drama, danger, romance and history.' -Pam Norfolk, for the Press Association 'Better than Philippa Gregory' - The Bookseller 'Anne O'Brien has joined the exclusive club of excellent historical novelists.' - Sunday Express 'A gripping historical drama.' -Bella www.anneobrien.co.uk @anne_obrien
