Publisher's Summary

Joan of Kent, renowned beauty and cousin to King Edward III, is destined for a politically strategic marriage. As the king begins a long dynastic struggle to claim the crown of France, plunging England into the Hundred Years' War, he negotiates her betrothal to a potential ally and heir of a powerful lordship. But Joan, haunted by nightmares of her father's execution at the hands of her treacherous royal kin, fears the king's selection and is not resigned to her fate. She secretly pledges herself to one of the king's own knights, one who has become a trusted friend and protector. Now she must defend her vow as the king - furious at Joan's defiance - prepares to marry her off to another man. In A Triple Knot, Emma Campion brings Joan, the "Fair Maid of Kent," to glorious life, deftly weaving details of King Edward III's extravagant court into a rich and emotionally resonant tale of intrigue, love, and betrayal.

Critic Reviews

"A Triple Knot is a superbly written, evocative tale of Joan of Kent that captivated me from the first page and held me until the very end. With a deft eye for detail and a wonderfully authentic evocation of time and place, Campion has delivered what is certain to become a classic." ---Diane Haeger, author of The Secret Bride

Ok story, Annoying narration

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Heather Wilds?

While well-written, the story is pretty tedious - Girl wants to be with guy. People keep them apart unfairly, while they barely ever see each other. That's almost the entire book. But it was the repetitive cadence of the narrator that drove me up a wall. She's obviously talented (although her welsh people sounded jamaican) but someone needed to tell her to mix up her cadence. It was so repetitive, I almost couldn't make it through the book. And with the story being dull, I had to force myself to finish the thing. Luckily, the last part is a bit more interesting. But it was a slog.

There was a time when writers like Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory set the standard for really great fiction stories based on historical fact. Then suddenly the market became flooded with substandard tales of little known figures whom, with the help of overly liberal literary license, became the subjects of 14+ hour audiobooks. It got so bad that I was thinking about doing a book about King Henry's well-known talent for songwriting and singing. I would give him a black friend named "Duke Lil Wayne", who teaches the King how to rap, Crip-walk, and imports rapper/jeweler "Lord Paul Wall" to create a truly royal gold grill for Henry's teeth! Sound ridiculous? Not after you've listened to Philippa Gregory's most recent offering, "The King's Curse", which subjects us to 24 hours of an evil, narcissistic, snobby, hateful, ungracious, and whiny Lady Margaret Pole, who insinuates herself in every aspect of royal life, like a Tudor Forrest Gump. By hour 5, I wanted Henry VIII to let ME execute the old lady! I couldn't even finish that mess.

In this book, Emma Campion weaves a really interesting tale about Joan, the "Fair Maid of Kent". The scenarios presented here are credible and emotional. Narrator Heather Wilds is the perfect complement to a well-told story. Worth the price of admission!
