Overview

“The yardstick by which all historical novels are measured.”*

Seeking power and prestige, grim, ambitious Yorkshireman Edward Morland arranges a marriage between his meek son Robert and spirited Eleanor, young ward of the influential Beaufort family. Eleanor is appalled at being forced to marry a mere “sheep farmer”; she is, after all, secretly in love with Richard, Duke of York.

Yet from this apparently ill-matched union, Robert and Eleanor form a surprising connection that soon will be tested by a bloody civil war that divides families, sets neighbor against neighbor, and brings tragedy close to home.

What Readers Are Saying:*

“As a big fan of historical fiction, I found this to be one of the best in the genre.”

“Brilliant, a definite page turner. They combine real historical events with fascinating fictional characters.”

“The founding is a masterpiece of research into life in Middle-Age England. It is also a great start to a wonderful Dynasty—every time I buy a new book in this series, I read the whole lot again from the start.”

“Well researched and well written, this book simply does not allow you to stop until you reach the last page—and then rush to find the next in the series.”
