In 1623 Charles, heir to the throne of England, dons a disguise, crosses the Channel, rides horseback across France, and sneaks into Madrid, capital of England's proud Catholic enemy, Spain.
His mission? To woo the lovely Maria, sister of the King of Spain, and accomplish by marriage what decades of war have failed to do: reconcile the two embittered nations.
Once Charles and Maria meet, neither palace intrigues nor bloody murders cool their growing attraction. One thing alone prevents their union: Maria's Catholic Faith . . . which she will not abandon and England cannot abide.
Yes, Charles's marriage to Catholic Maria would briefy unite the kingdoms, but could soon destroy the monarchy. Outraged at the prospect of a Catholic queen, Charles's Puritan subjects are sure to rise up and take from him not only his throne, but even his life . . . and Maria's . . . plunging Europe into warfare greater than any seen before.
From detailed records of this actual love's gambit author Brennan Pursell has crafted a moving novel of faith, courage, danger, and hope, a tale in which the fate of nations hangs on the love of two young people: Prince Charles of England and Princess Maria of Spain.
