Anne O'Brien - A Tapestry of Treason

Rossiter Books, Ross-on-Wye, HR9 5HL
Tue 3rd September 2019 7:00PM
Anne O'Brien will talk about and sign copies of her new novel, A Tapestry of Treason.

Her actions could make history – but at what price?

1399: Constance of York, Lady Despenser, proves herself more than a mere observer in the devious intrigues of her magnificently dysfunctional family, The House of York.

Surrounded by power-hungry men, including her aggressively self-centred husband Thomas and ruthless siblings Edward and Richard, Constance places herself at the heart of two treasonous plots against King Henry IV. Will it be possible for this Plantagenet family to safeguard its own political power by restoring either King Richard II to the throne, or the precarious Mortimer claimant?

Although the execution of these conspiracies will place them all in jeopardy, Constance is not deterred, even when the cost of her ambition threatens to overwhelm her.  Even when it endangers her new-found happiness.

With treason, tragedy, heartbreak and betrayal, this is the story of awoman ahead of her time, fighting for herself and what she believes to be right in a world of men.
