Product description

En cette année 1415, alors que la guerre de Cent Ans fait rage depuis des décennies, Catherine de Valois, fille du roi de France, est offerte en tribut au vainqueur d’Azincourt, le roi Henri V d’Angleterre. Eblouie par son royal époux, la jeune reine rêve quelque temps de s’en faire aimer, avant de comprendre que c’est son héritage que le roi convoite et que son seul désir est qu’elle lui donne un enfant qui puisse un jour porter les deux couronnes de France et d’Angleterre. Hélas, Catherine vient à peine de mettre au monde le fils tant attendu, que Henri meurt subitement. Enjeu d’alliances et de violentes convoitises, la jeune reine est obligée de vivre sous tutelle, prisonnière d’une cour qui lui dénie le droit d’avoir encore un cœur. Jusqu’au jour où, parmi les gens de sa maison, un Gallois, Owen Tudor, attire son attention. Une union interdite à une femme de son rang. Mais, résolue à tout risquer, Catherine décide de prendre son destin en main, et de braver ceux qui ont fait d’elle l’otage de la couronne et de leurs propres ambitions.
Translation into French of The Forbidden Queen.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
