Here’s what New York Times bestselling author Eleanor Brown says about Anne and Louis:
“A lively, engaging story, rich with historical detail that brings the story of a forgotten queen to life. Reminiscent of Philippa Gregory and Jean Plaidy, Anne and Louis gives voice to Anne of Brittany, allowing her to step from the historical shadows and illuminating her as a determined and influential political figure, as well as a bright and devoted woman in her own right.” —Eleanor Brown, NYT bestselling author of The Weird Sisters, The Light of Paris
Anne and Louis excerpt:
“Charlotte, you are safe. She is gone,” he murmured behind her.
Charlotte turned and slapped Nicolas de Laval across the face as hard as she could. “And since you are not gone, I am not safe at all,” she hissed.
Nicolas stumbled backward, his hand to his cheek. “My lady, you misunderstand.”
“I understand perfectly. You know her, she knows you, and I don’t want to know anymore.”
—Anne and Louis, p. 84
