Here Be Dragons/Penman, Sharon/Paper/0140133402/S054-B2
Joanna, royal bastard and political pawn, battled for a lifetime with divided loyalties, warring loves. To risk, in a guilty moment of passion, her hard-won peace and even life itself.
Indulged and adoring daughter of King John, wed to Llewelyn, Prince of Gwynedd, her father's great vassal and bitter foe, Joanna was a lonely stranger in a hostile land. Until she came to love her charismatic husband - and, in the bloody wars that followed, the beleaguered strongholds of the Marches were not more ravaged than Joanna's troubled heart.
The turbulent clashes of two disparate worlds, and the personal destinies of the people caught between them, are magnificently interwoven in this sweeping novel of power and passion, loyalty and lies. Here Be Dragons brings thirteenth-century England, France and Wales to tangled, tempestuous life.
