My Lady Anne
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: My Lady Anne
The Lady Margaret Russell, Countess of Cumberland, is woman ahead of her time.
When she learns that her husband’s property will revert to his brother upon her death, leaving her daughter with nothing, she hires lawyers to change this.
And this is simply not done in England in the early 1600s.
Margaret’s daughter, Anne, is old enough to see that her beloved mother is a force to be reckoned with, and even though the process is slow, Anne finds herself with lands and homes and money.
After all her mother went through to secure her inheritance, Anne finds herself married to an Earl who likes to gamble, although he is very bad at it.
When his debts accumulate, he asks for access to her land and money, and when Anne refuses to sign them over, he leaves, taking Anne’s beloved daughter, Margaret, named for her own mother, with him.
But Anne is not one to give up, not even when family friends turn against her, and the king himself becomes involved.
Set during the time of Shakespeare, The Gunpowder Plot, the execution of King Charles and the rise of Cromwell, Lady Anne’s life, dutifully recorded by her faithful servant Samuel, shows a world in change through the eyes of a strong, capable and loyal woman.
