From the Publisher:
The second book in the classic Catherine de? Medici trilogy from Jean Plaidy, the grande dame of historical fiction

When Catherine de? Medici was forced to marry Henry, Duke of Orleans, her heart was not the only one that was broken. Jeanne of Navarre once dreamed of marrying this same prince, but, like Catherine, she must comply with France?s political needs. And so both Catherine?s and Jeanne?s lives are set on unwanted paths, destined to cross in affairs of state, love, and faith, driving them to become deadly political rivals.

Years later Jeanne is happily married to the dashing but politically inept Antoine de Bourbon. But the widowed Catherine is now the ambitious mother of princes, and she will do anything to see her beloved second son, Henry, rule France. As civil war ravages the country and Jeanne fights for the Huguenot cause, Catherine advances along her unholy road, making enemies at every turn.

Author Bio
Jean Plaidy
Eleanor Hibbert, who wrote under many pseudonyms (including Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy), was one of the most prolific writers of the 20th century. Little is known about Hibbert's closely guarded personal life. She was born in London in the early 1900s, although the exact year is a mystery. Under the name Jean Plaidy, Hibbert published her first novel, "Beyond the Blue Mountains", in 1947. During the subsequent four decades, Hibbert wrote over 150 books, and earned a small fortune. She died on cruise ship on the Mediterranean Sea in 1993.
