From the bestselling author of KATHERINE, this is the spellbinding story of a young French prince and a Cornish girl caught up in the intrigue of the 10th Century English Court.
Anya Seton was born in New York City. She began writing in 1938 with a short story sold to a newspaper syndicate and the first of her ten novels, MY THEODOSIA, was published in 1941. She died in 1990.
'[Anya Seton] brought history so vividly to life' -- Philippa Gregory 'A triumph ... Fast-moving, exciting and all-action. Avalon has terrific pace, crisp dialogue ... Seton makes even the minor characters into vivid, convincing folk. A splendid full-length portrait.' -- Evening News 'Perhaps the greatest gifts Anya Seton brings to her historical novels are the zest of her narrative, the life she breathes into the most insignificant characters, and the atmosphere of the era she evokes around them' -- Books and Bookmen 'Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale' -- Woman's Journal 'Wonderful historical novels' -- Alison Weir 'Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious.' -- Daily Telegraph on KATHERINE 'Seductive, atmospheric, intriguing' -- Kate Mosse on GREEN DARKNESS
