Queen of the Sea

Out of stock
When her sister seizes the throne, Queen Eleanor of Albion is banished to a tiny
island off the coast of her kingdom, where the nuns of the convent spend their days
peacefully praying, sewing, and gardening. But the island is also home to Margaret, a
mysterious young orphan girl whose life is upturned when the cold, regal stranger
arrives. As Margaret grows closer to Eleanor, she grapples with the revelation of the
island’s sinister true purpose as well as the truth of her own past. When Eleanor’s life
is threatened, Margaret is faced with a perilous choice between helping Eleanor and
protecting herself. In a hybrid novel of fictionalized history, Dylan Meconis paints
Margaret’s world in soft greens, grays, and reds, transporting readers to a quiet,
windswept island at the heart of a treasonous royal plot.
