Product Description:

A grand-scale historical novel from the national bestselling author of Mistress Shakespeare.

Born into a first family of Ireland, with royal ties on both sides, Elizabeth Fitzgerald-known as Gera-finds her world overturned when Henry VIII imprisons her father, the Earl of Kildare, and brutally destroys her family. Torn from the home she loves, her remaining family scattered, Gera dares not deny the refuge offered her in England's glittering royal court. There she must navigate ever-shifting alliances even as she nurtures her secret desire for revenge. From County Kildare's lush green fields to London's rough-and-tumble streets and the royal court's luxurious pageantry, The Irish Princess follows the journey of a daring woman whose will cannot be tamed, and who won't be satisfied until she restores her family to its rightful place in Ireland.



Gera Fitzgerald was born into a loving royal family in Ireland where she would one day be “The Irish Princess”, but fate intervenes and Gera is forced into exile from her beloved country by King Henry VIII in this latest historical novel by Karen Harper.

Gera is a daughter of the Earl of Kildare in the 16th century but Henry VIII is afraid of the power he wields in Ireland and accuses him and other family members of treason and imprisons the men in the infamous Tower of London where many people were sent but never returned. Gera is determined to one day return to Ireland and for her family to once again rule. She smuggles a family book, The Red Book of Kildare out of the country and keeps it hidden until she finds a way to return her family to power.

Edward Clinton prevents Gera from foolishly destroying some papers from the king when she is just a young girl, but this is not the only time they will butt heads as Gera finds her way into the life at court where she one day hopes to have her revenge against the king. Clinton seems to be watching over her as she makes her way through London and the inner courts. Alliances are constantly changing at court, a close confidant today could be branded as an enemy against the court tomorrow so Gera must tread carefully as she plots and dreams her revenge. There are enemies at every turn and Gera must constantly be alert as to who she can trust and who will turn against her. She takes a special interest in Princess Elizabeth where they have more in common than their bright red hair.

Harper has done her research of English history and her portrayals of various members of the royal families are well written and become vivid in the pages of this book. The Irish Princess is the story of a brave and strong young woman who is determined to win back her family properties and rightful place in the Irish countryside.
