In the newly formed court of William of Orange and Queen Mary – after James II has fled England with diamond buckles sewn into his waistcoat – the beautiful and independently minded Lady Flora arrives at court. Having grown up against the backcloth of The Glorious Revolution, in the seclusion of the countryside surrounded by a world-renowned garden on which her family’s considerable fortune was made, romantic love is not the first thing on her mind. But her world is turned upside down when she meets the roguish and devilishly charming Lord Edwin Grantley who is on the lookout for a wife.
Is Flora the life raft that will stop Edwin from drowning, or will he drag her down with him?
Flora’s Glory, Vanessa Hannam’s captivating fifth novel, is a tale of love, extraordinary bravery and deadly political intrigue set in the courts and gardens of seventeenth-century England.
