From the Publisher:
New York Times bestselling author offers a spirited retelling of King Richard the Lionheart and Robin Hood
Margaret Campbell Barnes explores the Crusader King's triumphs and tragedies in a compelling novel of love, loyalty, and lost chances. The fierce Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine birthed a Plantagenet dynasty before her marriage to Henry II became a mockery, and her family's future hinges on Richard. Linked persistently with the Lionheart in folklore is Robin Hood, portrayed here as Richard's foster brother and conscience, who so enraged the King that he is banished. The Passionate Brood is a tale of a man driven to win back the Holy Land, beset by the guilt of casting out his childhood friend, and shouldering the burden of being the lionhearted leader of the Plantagenets.
