Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Smallcomes the first novel in the Friarsgate Inheritance series—a sweeping novel of a young girl’s unexpected journey into womanhood, into mystery and passion, and into history...
 
Rosamund Bolton is the heiress to the manor of Friarsgate in the wild Cumbrian border between England and Scotland. More than a splendid inheritance, Friarsgate will chart the fate of the orphaned beauty widowed at a precious young age.  It will take her from the treacherous custody of a devious uncle, sweeping her into the magnificent court of Elizabeth of York, into the confidence of Katherine of Aragon, and past the intimate chamber doors of a young, handsome Henry VIII.  It’s an adventure that will test the limits of passion and betrayal, change the meaning of the word enemy, and turn even the most daring fantasy into true love...
