Rich in intrigue and scheming, love and lust, Sherry Jones’s vibrant historical novel follows four women destined to sway the fate of nations and the hearts of kings. . . . Amid the lush valleys and fragrant wildflowers of Provence, Marguerite, Eléonore, Sanchia, and Beatrice have learned to charm, hunt, dance, and debate under the careful tutelage of their ambitious mother—and to abide by the countess’s motto: “Family comes first.” With Provence under constant attack, their legacy and safety depend upon powerful alliances. Marguerite’s illustrious match with the young King Louis IX makes her Queen of France. Soon Eléonore—independent and daring—is betrothed to Henry III of England. In turn, shy, devout Sanchia and tempestuous Beatrice wed noblemen who will also make them queens. Yet a crown is no guarantee of protection. Enemies are everywhere, from Marguerite’s duplicitous mother-in-law to vengeful lovers and land-hungry barons. Then there are the dangers that come from within, as loyalty succumbs to bitter sibling rivalry, and sister is pitted against sister for the prize each believes is rightfully hers—Provence itself. From the treacherous courts of France and England, to the bloody tumult of the Crusades, Sherry Jones traces the extraordinary true story of four fascinating sisters whose passions, conquests, and progeny shaped the course of history.

5.0 Four Sisters, All Queens
This book was an interesting read. It not only showed how families sought to better themselves with marriages, but the lengths that they would go to. These four sisters, although they tried to band together, ended up working against each other in some instances, but as their mother always reminded t...

This is another gem I found through my group Historical Fictionistas . Sherry Jones was nice enough to join our group for the discussion, which helped to add to my enjoyment of this book. Four Sisters, All Queens takes place in 13th Century Europe and follows the lives of the Savoy sisters. The cou...

DNF.Got just over a quarter of a way through this and couldn't take anymore. It's full of walking cliches rather than characters and way too many modern sensibilities & attitudes for anyone to believe it is taking place in medieval times. Any historical event or place mentioned merely acts as back...
