Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A seamless blend of history and fiction, and a gripping read.”
—Minneapolis Star Tribune

 

The Rebel Princess—the breathtaking sequel to Judith Koll Healeys critically acclaimed historical novel The Canterbury Papers—returns the reader to Medieval France as it continues the story of an exceptional heroine, Princess Alais. Blending fascinating fact with dazzling invention, Healeys The Rebel Princess is an impeccably researched, gorgeously detailed tale of love, intrigue, and adventure, brimming with surprises and spine-tingling suspense—an ideal read for lovers of Philippa Gregorys The Other Boleyn Girl and Labyrinth by Kate Mosse.

Synopsis:

Alaïs, the spirited and indomitable princess of France, returns for another thrilling adventure in this historically rich, mesmerizing sequel to The Canterbury Papers.

Paris, October 1207. There is nothing that Princess Alaïs of France wants more than to settle down with her lover, William of Caen, and to reveal to his ward, Francis, that she is his mother. but intrigue is afoot in the palace, and tensions are pushed to the brink when a much prized relic is stolen and young Francis goes missing. frantic for his safety, Alaïs will risk life and limb to find the boy—donning a disguise to outwit cunning enemies as she makes her way into unfamiliar territory to save her son, and perhaps prevent a bloody holy war that threatens her beloved France.

From the opulent halls of Paris to austere monasteries in the south of France, The Rebel Princess combines history and suspense in an unforgettable tale involving one of the most enigmatic and intriguing female figures in medieval history.
