'The author will have a riot on her hands when people reach the last page of this book - readers will be so anxious for the second book in the trilogy to be published.' ~Gloria McAuley, the first person ever to read this book.

If Chaucer was your brother-in-law; John Wycliffe your good friend; and the most powerful man in England - John of Gaunt, the great Duke of Lancaster - was your lover . . . what would your life be like?

Katharine de Roët is one of the most enigmatic women in history; and yet she sat at the centre of some of the greatest changes the world has known. Intrigue, betrayal, and intimate connections with some of the greatest minds of not just her own times, but of all recorded history, was the daily stuff of her life.

But for all that, the essence of Katharine's life was a love story, and the story of John of Gaunt and Katharine Swynford is truly one of the great love stories of history.

At the age of seventeen Carol Sargeant read Anya Seton's lovely novel 'Katherine' and was so moved by it that she started a 30 year research project to answer a single question. The question was 'what really happened'; what is John of Gaunt and Katharine Swynford's story?

If Katharine had not said yes to love, the Tudor dynasty would not have existed, George Washington would not have been there to fi ght for American independence, and Alfred Lord Tennyson would not have written his famous poetry. And that is just the story of some of her descendants. More important is the story of the woman and the world she knew.

From the Inside Flap :

Katharine is known by her maiden name of Katharine de Roët by some; others know her by her married name of Katharine Swynford. But for millions of readers the world over she is simply known as'Katherine' from Anya Seton's wonderful book by that title.  In fact, Katharine could have been the original model for Cinderella - except that Katharine's story begins 'after' she is united with her prince. For Katharine, romance is just the prelude! Intrigue; betrayal; extreme danger; and the need to make far reaching decisions were the everyday norm for Katharine.
 
LOVE, HONOUR AND ROYAL BLOOD is the story of Katharine's life after she met her prince!

This is not the dry reading of historical facts, but the heart stopping suspense of people who had to endure some of the greatest dramatic events that the world has known. The Hundred Years War, the Black Plague, and the Peasant's Revolt were just the daily events of their lives. Richard II; Henry Bolingbroke/Henry IV; and the Black Prince were members of their family - and sometimes difficult members at that!
 
This is the story of real people who lived in dangerous times, written by a woman who spent thirty years doing intensive research so that she could answer one question to her own satisfaction. The question was - 'what really happened - what was John of Gaunt and Katharine Swynford's story?'

Like millions of readers the world over the author read Anya Seton's lovely novel Katherine at the pivotal age of seventeen - and was so intrigued by it that it inspired her to start on a research quest that was to last more than thirty years. Carol Sargeant set out to find out
what had really happened. What was Katharine's life really like?

The meticulous research of the author makes the interwoven stories of these fascinating people come alive. LOVE, HONOUR AND ROYAL BLOOD needed to be a trilogy to contain the epic dramas of the time in which they lived. The Duke of Lancaster and his beautiful mistress Katharine were more often than not at the very centre of the turmoil engulfing the times. In fact, John of Gaunt and Katharine lived at a time when they were bombarded by the great events of history. It was the time when parliamentary democracy was being forged in the 'Good Parliament' (against Lancaster's strenuous opposition). When the deep thoughts that would lead to the Protestant Reformation were being shaped by Wycliffe (and spread under the sheltering arm of John of Gaunt's infl uence). It was also the time when Katharine's brother-in-law, Chaucer, was painting word pictures of his times that endure to this day.

This is Katharine's story.
