(From the publisher):
Charles II's return to the throne meant restoration of all the gaiety that had been suppressed during the previous years.
The King's fiery mistress Barbara Palmer could twist him round her little finger. He could refuse her nothing, even if it meant hurting his new wife, the naive and loving Catherine of Braganza. The jealousies, intrigues and loves at the court of the "Merry Monarch" are seen from the viewpoint of both women -- the wicked and the wronged. Both, in their different ways, loved him dearly.
