"Court Lady and Country Wife is a fascinating and substantial read, rich with historical and political detail, complex and sharply drawn characters, and more plot twists and turns than could be contained in a novel." Diane Schoemperlen, author of our lady of the lost and found. " Court Lady and Country Wife is a captivating portrait of two daring sisters at the center of a tumultuous period in history. Betcherman depicts the story of the two Percy sisters in a way that integrates the domestic and the political, the personal and the public, giving a freshly compete and balanced portrait of England in the seventeenth century. I found it absorbing, rich with detail and highly readable." Sandra Gulland, author of the Josephine B. trilogy.
