From the bedchamber to the battlefield, through treachery and fidelity, one woman is imprisoned by the secrets of the crown. It is an age where passion reigns and treachery runs as thick as blood. Young Eleanor has two men in her life: her uncle King Edward II, and her husband Hugh le Despenser, a mere knight but the newfound favorite of the king. She has no desire to meddle in royal affairs-she wishes for a serene, simple life with her family. But as political unrest sweeps the land, Eleanor, sharply intelligent yet blindly nav̐e, becomes the only woman each man can trust. Fiercely devoted to both her husband and her king, Eleanor holds the secret that could destroy all of England-and discovers the choices no woman should have to make. At its heart, The Traitor's Wife is a unique love story that every reader will connect with. Gold Medalist, historical / military fiction, 2008 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Includes bonus reading group guide!

I found myself looking for spare moments so I could read a few more pages. The author makes history and the characters come alive. I would recommend this even for those who are not big on historical fiction. It's still a good story with vivid and sympathetic characters.

If you like historical novels this is pretty good though there are so many similar names its rather difficult to follow at times I was fore ever referring to the index at the beginning. Ill look for the sequel with interest.
