The Summer Queen, the first of the novels, covers the early years of Alienor's life in France, culminating in her marriage to Henry, the son of Empress Matilda. In that novel, there are just glimpses of the character Alienor is marrying but, in The Winter Crown, Henry emerges in all his outrageous glory. Never without a mistress, Henry already has an illegitimate son and one of his first acts in The Winter Crown is to introduce the child into Alienor's household. She can be under no illusion - she has met her match.
The Winter Crown focuses on Alienor's prime years, the years in which she gave Henry child after child, becoming almost the brood mare she least wanted to be, years in which she lost children and the years that killed the one-time great love between Henry and Alienor.Read more ›
