“One of my favourite Tudor set books . . . A wonderfully vivid read.” Nicola Cornick
Young widow Elizabeth Williams is determined to make a success of the business she inherited from her merchant father. But an independent woman draws the wrong kind of attention, and Elizabeth soon realises she has enemies – enemies who know the dark truth about her dead husband.
Happiness arrives when Elizabeth meets rapidly rising lawyer, Thomas Cromwell. Their marriage begins in mutual love and respect – but it isn’t easy being the wife of an ambitious courtier in Henry VIII’s London. The city is both merciless and filled with temptation, and Elizabeth soon realises she must take care in the life she has chosen . . . or risk losing everything.
