Love Alison Weir and Phillipa Gregory? Haunted by the stories of the Tudors and the Boleyns?
You’ll love the poignant story of one of the most intriguing but least known princesses in British royal history – Joan of Kent.
ONE PRINCESS. TWO HUSBANDS. BY ORDER OF THE KING.
When young Joan married William de Montecute at Westminster Abbey in 1341, she became the first and only princess in British history to knowingly commit bigamy. It was done at the command of her uncle and king, Edward III.
Yet Joan of Kent is no frail English rose. For ten long years she defies her family, her country and her king to keep faith with the man she claims is her true husband.
They are all sure she will break in the end.
One of the most astonishing and poignant love stories in medieval history from internationally bestselling author Colin Falconer.
What readers are saying about A VAIN AND INDECENT WOMAN
“I really like all the Falconer books I’ve read… but this one is going to rank as my favourite. It’s one-of-a-kind. “Joan of Woodstock” doesn’t have the historical celebrity status of an Elizabeth I, or Catherine d’Medici; but I’m betting you’ll learn something, and be entertained in the process!” Shari *****
“I loved this book… This captivating historical read was filled with complex and memorable characters that brought history to life. Joan of Kent was an absolutely fascinating woman whose life and times were captured so wonderfully in this book… I read it. I loved it. I bought it. It’s an historical read that shouldn’t be missed.” Meg Nyberg *****
