The wicked, bawdy Restoration court is no place for a child princess like ten-year-old Anne, who cuts an odd figure: a sickly child, she is drawn towards sweetmeats and gossip with her Ladies of the Bedchamber. But as King Charles's niece, Anne is also a political pawn, who will be forced to play her part in the troubled Stuart dynasty. Growing to maturity, Anne is transformed from overlooked Princess to the heiress of England. Forced to overcome the schemes of her sister and her closest friends, Anne is asked to betray her father, and as this novel shows, she will be tempted to claim the throne for herself.
