Book Blurb:

Wounds from an enemy are less painful than the betrayal of a trusted friend.

15th century. England devolves into chaos as two families fight over the throne during the Wars of the Roses, and the repercussions spill over onto the Isle of Jersey. In an era when shifting alliances and acts of treason are commonplace, three lives become entangled in a web of love, deceit, and revenge.

Meet Philippe de Carteret, an insecure young man, thrust into his ancestral role as the island’s premier seigneur. He inherits a manor in ruins with no means to pay for the repairs.

Add Clement Le Hardy, embittered by the loss of his heritage. He vows to reclaim his rightful legacy and exact retribution on Philippe for his misfortunes.

Enter Margaret Harleston, a headstrong maiden, with powerful connections and a substantial dowry. Determined to forge her own path, she rebels against societal constraints.

This gripping tale, based on real people and true events, takes readers on a page-turning journey from the windswept cliffs of Jersey to the gritty streets of London, culminating in a real-life feat of bravery that is still celebrated on the Isle of Jersey today.
