the Irish Princess by Karen Harper relates the tale of Elizabeth Fitzgerald, a royal princess of Ireland, whose father is imprisoned by Henry VIII. Only Henry is not satisfied with merely incarcerating her father, he destroys her family.
Elizabeth is forced to take refuge in England, of all places, at the Tudor court. Her greatest desire is to avenge her family but, first, she must learn who she can trust and be wary of those who are untrustworthy. A dangerous situation for a woman at Henry's mercy.
