Overview

The Exiled by Posie Graeme-Evans

In this windswept story set in the lusty fifteenth century, the enchanting Anne faces the challenge of raising her child in exile. Always resourceful, she flourishes as a merchant and is able to support her household. But the local businessmen aren't pleased about competing with a woman and her foes are multiplying around her, desperate to put her back in what they believe is her rightful place.
Anne has a secret that her enemies could use to destroy her. Her beloved son is the product of a passionate affair with the king, Edward IV, who knows nothing of his existence. If this information were to fall into the wrong hands, it could prove lethal for Anne and her child. She struggles to find peace in a world of duplicity and suspicion, where adversaries masquerade as allies, and someone very powerful wants her dead. Yet, despite the pressure of her enemies, what pains Anne the most is that she is unsure when or if she will see her darling Edward again.

I enjoyed reading The Exiles by Posies Graeme-Evans and will read the 3rd book in the Trilogy. However, there was a point in the story that I asked myself what additional misfortune, intrigue or calamity could possibly befall one individual. It was all just a little to much.

Loved this book enough to buy two more by Posie Graeme-Evans. If you enjoy historical fiction books give this a go. I couldn't put this one down.

As much as I enjoyed The Innocent, I believe The Exiled was even better. Now on to The Uncrowned Queen. Time for another trilogy, Posie!

I have also read the fist book in the series, The Innocent, and both the first book and this second are great books. The Exiled is just as good as the first one, maybe even better. They both flow toegether so beautifully it's as if they are one book. I cannot wait for the third one. You should really get this book if you enjoy historical fiction. It was an amazingly entertaining read that leaves you craving for more.

In the latter half of the fifteenth century in Brugge, Belgium, Anne de Bohun remembers what it is like to be a servant, but now enjoys the economic freedom of being ward to wealthy English merchant Sir Matthew Cuttifer. Knowing she probably can never go home though she misses her lover, Matthew¿s household makes it easier to raise her infant son Edward without his father, King Edward IV who cannot acknowledge his offspring. --- Actually Anne is more of an apprentice than a ward as she learns the merchant business. She begins to successfully buy and sell including the trading of paintings, but also gains the wrath of her all male rivals who resent competition with a woman. Her enemies multiply in number and in intensity seeking anything to put her back in her place. She knows that if they learn the secret of her child¿s blue blood, death would stalk them. --- This sequel continues the story of Anne started in the entertaining THE INNOCENT. The story line provides a captivating perspective to the merchant world of 1560s Belgium where the heroine¿s male adversaries see her as an abomination that must be thwarted. Anne is a fabulous protagonist who serves as the focus of the tale almost reading like a work of biographical fiction. Posie Graeme-Evans writes a terrific medieval historical that will have her audience clamoring for the final novel in this stupendous saga.--- Harriet Klausner

I personally could not wait to read the sequel to The Innocent so I went web hunting around the world and was able to obtain the book released in Australia. EXCELLENT Sequel, very good story line, and of course at the end of this book, it leaves you craving for more. Can't wait for the 3rd book. Definately worth picking up this book! 5 Stars!
