Maid of the King’s Court
author: Lucy Worsley
When a surprising turn of events lands her in the royal court, clever, headstrong Eliza Camperdowne is drawn into the dizzying, dangerous orbit of Henry the Eighth and struggles to distinguish friend from foe. Is her glamorous flirt of a cousin, Katherine Howard, an ally or Eliza’s worst enemy? And then there’s the king’s page, Ned, entirely unsuitable for Eliza but entirely impossible to ignore. Not to mention King Henry himself. Can even the most willful young woman direct her own fate and follow her heart in a world ruled by powerful men?
“A satisfying blend of fact and artistic liberty. . . . Exhilarating, romantic, and illuminating; has the potential to turn casual readers into Tudor history buffs.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
