About the Author
As a prolific reader and ex-history teacher, Anne O’Brien has been lucky to fulfil her ambition to write historical romances. Her first success was a 400 word love story about a garden for Mills & Boon – an auspicious start! Anne lives with her husband in an eighteenth-century cottage. It is a place that gives her much inspiration and many sources for her writing. Anne often makes time to visit old houses, gardens and priories to absorb atmosphere for her novels.--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Superficial, repetitive and unconvincing, it's a cheesy Mills & Boon love story masquerading as historical fiction. I rarely write such a short, dismissive review, but this really is poor stuff.
It's prompted me to dig out my well-worn copy of Anya Seton's Katherine, to remind myself how it should be done.
Like a number of reviewers I have read many books about the Tudor period and more modern history e.g. Victorian and Edwardian period. But had very little reading experience of Lancastrian times. Well this book has filled many of the lamentable gaps in my knowledge!
The author has a very pleasing style of writing which made this book enjoyable. The subject, Elizabeth of Lancaster, is at the centre of a fascinating story and Anne O'Brien has told it very well. After all she is well qualified to write historical books and has clearly done her homework.
The love story between Elizabeth and John Holland is skilfully woven through the history of this time. I am not sure I always warmed to the character of John and I must say Elizabeth was far from perfect herself. But this is a portrayal of how their passionate love story unfolded and of the tragic culmination of their relationship. Eventually Elizabeth had a difficult decision to make. The events that followed devastated her, the depths of her grief is brilliantly portrayed by Anne O'Brien.
The end of this book leaves Elizabeth at a stage where she has forgiven herself and is ready to move on, albeit with difficulty. There is hope.
This fascinating period is brought to life with its intrigue, plots, dilemmas, love story etc. centred around Elizabeth of Lancaster, who hitherto is little known. A super book which I am sure will lead to further reading of this author.
I loved this novel .....and can't wait to read another, her ability to bring her charecters to life is amazing.....being a huge Phillipa Gregory fan, this book must have been really good to have impressed......I cant wait o choose my next one....
