Ellie Carver arrives at her grandmother’s bedside expecting to find her silently slipping away. Instead, the beloved woman begins speaking. Of a secret past and castle ruins forgotten by time. Of a hidden chapel that served as a rendezvous for the French Resistance in World War II. Of lost love and deep regret . . .
The novel begins with the first queen of Henry VIII, Katharine of Aragon. For a nice twist to set the tone of the novel it starts with the queen as she has already been cast aside by the notorious king of England. Anne Boleyn (arguably most famous wife of the Tudor king) is already in the spotlight as the future queen but only if Katharine will agree to the annulment of her marriage to Henry.
