The Lady Elizabeau Treveighan is the illegitimate daughter of Geoffrey, Duke of Brittany. Elizabeau was sent to foster at a very young age, her identity known only to herself and the earl who fostered her. When her half-brother Prince Arthur is murdered and rumors begin to fly that the opposition to King John intends to marry her to a Teutonic prince and supplant her and her new husband as the rulers of England, she suddenly becomes a very hot, and very dangerous, commodity.

Great book, great story. Plenty of action and romance. Very realistic and believable characters. My only complaint was the narrator. He had a raspy voice and he made all of the characters sound older than they were in the story. Sometimes the narrator talked in a whisper-like voice that made it hard to hear.

Love Kathryn LeVeque. All of her books are great and this is one of her best.

Prudence Cotton has recently lost her husband and is desperate to find her daughter, captured by the Nipmuk tribe during King Philip's war. She's convinced her daughter is alive but cannot track her into the wilderness alone. Help arrives in the form of James Bailey, an agent of the crown sent to Boston to investigate the murder of Prudence's husband and to covertly cause a disturbance that would give the king just cause to install royal governors.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story. A little of everything - suspense, mystery, action, history and romance.
As a fan of historical fiction this book is one of the best. I can already picture the movie it could become.
