Jacquetta, daughter of the Count of Luxembourg and kinswoman to half the royalty of Europe, was married to the great Englishman John, Duke of Bedford, uncle to Henry VI. Widowed at the age of 19, she took the extraordinary risk of marrying a gentleman of her household for love, and then carved out a new life for herself.
I have a love / hate relationship with Gregory’s books.
I have always been fascinated with history – especially British history – and her books made me obsessed. Because of her books, I’ve spent hundreds of hours doing research, basically fact finding every book I’ve read of hers, and loving every minute of it. And boring my husband to pieces as I babble to him about the descrepances.
But that’s exactly the fun of her books – you know the history is crap, and sometimes downright completely made up, but I’ve accepted that and can enjoy her books for what they are – a light, enjoyable, romp
