A daughter s love. A monarch s duty.
On the road to greatness, one young woman must make an unthinkable
For Princess Mary, life has never been simple, but through it
all the love of her father, the Duke of York, has been a constant
and reliable comfort. Despite his own loyalty to the Catholic
Church, the Duke and his brother, King Charles II, raised Mary as a
Protestant to protect her in a time of religious and political
upheaval. In order to cement this safety and to ensure the
stability of the family line, at age fifteen, Mary is married to
her Protestant first cousin William, Prince of Orange.
However, in post-Restoration England, matters are rarely so simply
settled. When Mary s uncle, King Charles II, dies suddenly and
without an heir, her beloved father is crowned James II. But a
Catholic king is not the will of the people, and even Mary s own
husband is crying out for change. Can Mary take part in actions
that will ultimately remove her own father from the throne and
endanger his life? With family loyalty and the will of a nation at
odds, what choice can a young princess make?
With emotional clarity and vivid historical detail, beloved author
Jean Plaidy brings us into the court and behind the scenes as
history unfolds and the young princess and her groom become William
and Mary the legendary monarchs, and the only co-regents in the
history of a nation.
