>Jane Winstead is only sixteen when King Edward and Lord Hastings begin vying for her affections.

After Hastings attempts to steal her away in the dead of night, Jane’s father decides to marry her off as soon as possible to Matthew Shore, a wealthy goldsmith.

But Goldsmith is a jealous man, and forbids Jane from leaving the house except to see her relatives.

Jane’s mother is not content with a mere goldsmith, and Matthew’s cousin Cecily is jealous of Jane.

Between the two of them they hatch a scheme to put Jane back in the clutches of the King.

All around them the War of the Roses is beginning to show its thorns and Matthew Shore is on the wrong side of it.

Even if he survives it, he might never be able to go home.

Meanwhile, Cecily is hatching another scheme, using the traitor Owen Lewellyn as a pawn.

But Owen’s sister, Nesta, might prove harder to win over than he suspects.

Based on the real-life mistress of Edward the fourth, Jane Shore is a gripping read from start to finish.

Read the story of Jane Shore as it’s never been told before and step back into history.

Mary Bennett (1813-1899) also edited The Boys and Girls Companion with her husband. After his death Bennett died in poverty.
