Introduction

An emotional tale based on historical fact imagining the impact of King George III's madness on the lives of his wife and daughters
 
London 1788: the calm order of Queen Charlotte's court is shattered by screams. The King of England is going mad. Left alone with 13 children and with the country at war, Charlotte has to fight to hold her husband's throne. It is a time of unrest and revolutions but most of all Charlotte fears the King himself, someone she can no longer love or trust. She has lost her marriage to madness and there is nothing she can do except continue to do her royal duty. Her six daughters are desperate to escape their palace asylum. Their only chance lies in a good marriage, but no prince wants the daughter of a madman. They are forced to take love wherever they can find it, with devastating consequences.

Interesting to view historical events, in a story, from a female perspective.
