2021: Travelling the globe in her campervan, Mathilde has never belonged anywhere. So when she receives news of an inheritance, she is shocked to discover she has a family in England.
Enchanting and gripping, The Queen’s Spy effortlessly merges past with present in an unforgettable tale of love, courage and betrayal – perfect for fans of Lucinda Riley and Kathryn Hughes.
Growing up in Surrey, Clare always dreamed of being a writer. Instead, after gaining a degree in history and an MA in women’s studies she accidentally fell into a career in IT. After spending many years as a project manager in London, she moved to Norfolk for a quieter life and trained as a professional jeweller.
Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I love dual timeline novels so The Queen’s Spy by Clare Marchant, with timelines in 1584 and 2021 is right up my street. It’s published by Avon today in paperback, eBook and audio. My thanks to the publishers for sending me a copy and huge congratulations to the author. I’m shining the spotlight on it today but I hope to read it very soon. Doesn’t it sound brilliant?
