Isabella: Braveheart of France

IsabellaIsabella: Braveheart of France

by Colin Falconer

She was taught to obey. Now she has learned to rebel.

Twelve-year-old Isabella, a French princess, marries King Edward II of England, only to discover he has a terrible secret. Who is Piers Gaveston, and why is his presence in the King’s court about to plunge England into civil war?

Ten long years later she is in utter despair. Does she submit to a lifetime of solitude and a spiritual death? Or seize her destiny and take the throne of England for herself?

The young queen believes in the love songs of the troubadours and her own exalted destiny, but she finds reality very different. As she grows to a woman in the deadly maelstrom of Edward’s court, she must decide between her husband, her children, even her life—and one breath-taking gamble that will change the course of history.

This is the story of the only woman ever to invade England – and win.

In the tradition of Philippa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick, Isabella is thoroughly researched and fast paced, the little known story of the one invasion the English never talk about.
