(From the publisher):
Mary, daughter of James II, is innocent, unworldly, devoted to her adored father. Nothing in her happy, sun-filled childhood can prepare her for the cruel betrayal to come...
For Mary is to marry dour, distant William of Orange, whose only interest is in the crown she can bring him. She is torn from her loving family and sent to the Hague, a court filled with intrigue and deceit. Here, she has no one to support her but Elizabeth Villiers, her lady-in-waiting, whose rivalry for William's affections will cause her nothing but anguish.
The courageous Mary is determined not to despair, but the ultimate test is to come -- the conflict between William and James for the crown of England. Mary has to make a choice -- is it more important to be James's daughter or William's wife?
