New ebook Story Tells of the Intrigue and Politics of France in the Early Fourteenth Century

It was a time of unicorns and witches, of angels and demons. There was God and the Son and the Holy Mother, and the Son’s magic turned bread into flesh and wine into blood. Apple trees needed a song to make good cider, and cats sucked the breath out of babies.

Author Jeannette Angell brings the Middle Ages to life in her novel The Crown and The Kingdom, now available in ebook format at

The Middle Ages has become a familiar place to nearly everybody who reads or goes to the movies. Tolkien and George Martin, C.S. Lewis and Marion Zimmer Bradley have romanticized it, and yet it doesn’t need that much help: the Templars’ mysticism and secrets (made famous by The Da Vinci Code) and the intrigue of the Inquisition (explored in The Name of the Rose) are only a small part of what was happening in France at the beginning of the fourteenth century.

It was a turbulent time that reads like the script for a soap opera. And while the king of France was orchestrating major events on the world stage, his four offspring were busy creating history of their own, with treason, murder, adultery and deception flourishing in Paris and London.

It was also a time to play with power, to determine who should rule the world: king, pope, or wizard. It was a time for princesses to fall in love rashly and to marry wisely, and for fortunes to be made and reputations to be ruined.

It was 1300.

Now this exciting time comes alive in Angell's The Crown and the Kingdom, available in ebook format on Amazon for only $3.99!
