(From the publisher):
Refusing the hand of the daughter of the King of Bohemia, George William of Celle passed on his birthright to his brother, Ernest Augustus, in exchange for his freedom. But then he fell in love with Eléonore, the beautiful emigrée from France. The result of this romance was Sophia Dorothea, the Princess of Celle.
The brothers ruled in rival courts at Celle and Hanover. In the center of the conflict was the beautiful Princess, thrust suddenly into the cruel reality of marriage with the sullen, vindictive George Lewis of Hanover, future King of England and first of the Georges. Separated from the parents she adored, neglected as a woman despite her beauty and her virtue, Sophia Dorothea was desperate for love. And when that love came, in the person of the dashing Swedish adventurer Count Konigsmarck, it would bring her rapture greater than she had ever dreamed. And inevitable tragedy.
