#1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory’s new historical novel tracks the rise of the Tidelands family in London, Venice, and New England.

Midsummers Eve, 1670. A wealthy man is waiting outside a poor London warehouse to meet with Alinor. He has everything to offer, wealth, land, status, and he believes she has nothing but the only thing he cannot buy: a son and heir. Will Alinor and her family sell-out to Sir James? Meanwhile in New England, Alinor’s brother Ned, who despises the Crown, cannot find justice in the New World, as the King’s revenge for rebellion turns the pioneers against each other and against the native Americans.

A beautiful widow, Livia, arrives from Venice, telling Alinor and her family that her son, Rob, has drowned and that she needs the family’s help with a profitable new trade. She will import beautiful statues of marble and bronze to fuel the classical craze among the wealthy landowners. She enchants the warehouse family with her son, their new heir; and promises of wealth to come. Bewitching Sir James and spinning them all into a mesh of deceit which only the brave little daughter of the warehouse can break. Sarah searches for the truth about Livia in Venice bringing home a stunning denouement.
