The third novel in Gregory’s “Cousins War” series.  Joan is not the main character in this book but “when the book begins in France in 1430, main character Jacquetta is in the company of the captured girl leader, Joan of Arc. While Jacquetta develops a fondness for Joan, their friendship doesn’t last long. In spite of Jacquetta’s hopes for Joan’s freedom, Joan is burned at the stake, an event that she is forced to witness.” (Bookreporter, Amazon.com review)

Publisher’s summary: #1 New York Times bestselling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory brings to life the story of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, a woman of passion and of legend who navigated a treacherous path through the battle lines in the War of the Roses to bring her family unimaginable power.
