Synopsis

Catherine of Lyonesse by Rick Robinson

Rebel. Prisoner. Princess. When the crown prince of Lyonesse is assassinated, his fiery daughter, Catherine, is taken to Aquitaine, where she is raised at the royal court and given two ladies-in-waiting to protect her from all who conspire against her. Now that the time has come for Catherine to return to Lyonesse, she finds herself surrounded by enemies. Danger lies around every corner, but Catherine will not stop until she has overcome her oppressors and taken what is rightfully hers. She may just live to claim her crown. Perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory, Catherine of Lyonesse is an irresistible historical romance.

Reviews

A bold princess, her spirited ladies, spies, plots, a dashing sea lord and a crown at risk - this book has everything I love! * Tamora Pierce * Strong on period detail, with intrigue, mystery, and romance, this is an engrossing novel with a superb central figure. * Parents in Touch * Rattling adventure yarn set in an invented world bearing a distinct resemblance to Renaissance Europe, with a cracking plot and a most attractive heroine. * Carla Nayland * If you're a fan of Philippa Gregory, Alison Weir or Anne Obrien, this is a new writer just for you * What's Good to Do *

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
