In fourteenth-century England, young Eleanor de Clare, favorite
niece of King Edward II, is delighted with her marriage to Hugh
le Despenser and her appointment to Queen Isabella’s household
as a lady-in-waiting.


It soon becomes apparent, however, that Eleanor’s beloved uncle
is not the king the nobles of the land—or his queen—expected.

 

Hugh’s unbridled ambition and his intimate relationship with
Edward arouse widespread resentment, even as Eleanor remains fiercely loyal to her husband and to her king.
But loyalty has its price…

 

Moving from royal palaces to prison cells, from the battlefield to
the bedchamber, between hope and despair, treachery and fidelity, hatred and abiding love, The Traitor’s Wife is a tale of an
extraordinary woman living in extraordinary times.
