Historical Fiction Fans Will Love “A Triple Knot”

untitledJoan of Kent, cousin of King Edward III, knows that she is destined for a political marriage. Edward is engaged in a struggle for the French crown and plans to use Joan to further his goals. Joan, who has seen her father betrayed to his death by this same family, isn’t resigned to her fate as royal pawn and secretly pledges herself to one of the king’s knights. She struggles to remain true to her vow while the king continues to plot her marriage to another.
Emma Campion does an excellent job of capturing the political intrigue and manipulations that helped plunge England and France into the 100 Years’ War. The characters are vibrant and interesting and the court life is portrayed with a fine eye for detail. Joan of Kent’s story is a true one brought to life with skillful writing and excellent dialogue. Emma Campion has done her research and delivered an interesting side chapter of Plantagenet history. I believe that historical fiction fans will truly enjoy “A Triple Knot.”
