Lucy Percy was the courtly beauty—a charming lady whose considerable talents in the ballrooms, bedrooms and anterooms of the court of Charles I were, in the end, not enough to keep her from the Tower of London. Lucy’s sister Dorothy was the country wife—mother of 12 children, a domineering and politically savvy woman whose unaspiring husband’s eventual rebellion caused a public scandal. Together the Countess of Carlisle and the Countess of Leicester were at the centre of power during one of Britain’s most tumultuous periods. This richly detailed, intriguing story of two exceptional sisters is a must-read for fans of Charlotte Gray, Sandra Gulland and Jane Dunn.
