Summary (From the publisher):

Marguerite, eldest daughter of the Count of Provence, had married a king of France. Her sister, the beautiful Eleanor, was determined that she would make as grand a match. Good fortune and wily cunning brought her Henry of England for a husband.

Henry showered gifts on the bride, who soon made him her slave in love. His extravagance forced him to levy even greater taxation on the land, until the specter of revolt loomed against him. For Simon de Montfort, the adventurer who would give England its first true parliament, the hour of destiny was at hand...
