Abstract:

The wicked, bawdy Restoration court is no place for a child princess. Ten-year-old Anne cuts an odd figure: a sickly child, she is drawn towards improper pursuits. Cards, sweetmeats, scandal and gossip with her Ladies of the Bedchamber figure large in her life. But as King Charles' niece, Anne is also a political pawn, who will be forced to play her part in the troubled Stuart dynasty. As Anne grows to maturity, she is transformed from overlooked Princess to the heiress of England. Forced to overcome grief for her lost children to her own betrayal of her father, she becomes one of the most complex and fascinating figures of English History. An ambitious, absorbing and authentic historical novel which reimagines Anne's life from child princess in the glittering Restoration court to Queen of England.
