About the Book
A fanatical religious group is trying to assist the Church in ridding itself of heretics. They terrorize the small kingdom of Montalcino. Catherine, its queen, is returning from Rome where she sought the pope’s help. She and her soldiers discover a woman being tortured. They rescue Lady Isabella. During her convalescence the women fall in love.

The sexual tension creates spiritual struggle for Catherine, who believes that their feelings doom them for eternity. The more she tries to deny her feelings, the more power they have over her. Eventually, Catherine gives into her love for Isabella. She marries to cover the relationship, but this only intensifies the danger because her Bishop is determined to expose her. His own life a web of secrecy, he seduces Catherine’s naïve daughter, Sofia, into friendship. Sofia plays out the Bishop’s intentions, propelling everyone toward disaster.

Set against the backdrop of one of the most wretched times in human history, The Queen’s Companion is an epic tale of lives torn apart by ambition, greed and betrayal. More, it is a story of how love can transform broken souls.
