The lady of the rivers

£14.99

Product description

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR: Black cloth covered book with silver titles on the spine. The cover is in very good condition as is the dust jacket with only slight signs of wear to the top edge of the front. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. It is signed by the author on the title page.

Jacquetta, daughter of the Count of Luxembourg and kinswoman to half the royalty of Europe, was married to the great Englishman John, Duke of Bedford, uncle to Henry VI. Widowed at the age of nineteen she took the extraordinary risk of marrying a gentleman of her household for love, and then carved out a life for herself as Queen Margaret of Anjou's close friend and a Lancaster supporter - until the day that her daughter Elizabeth Woodville fell in love and married the rival king Edward IV. Of all the little-known but important women of the period, her dramatic story is the most neglected. With her links to Melusina, and to the founder of the house of Luxembourg, together with her reputation for making magic, she is the most haunting of heroines.
