Back cover: The Child From the Sea tells the rich, turbulent tale of Lucy Walter, secret wife of Charles II, and mistress-despite-herself to a gallant and reckless Irish nobleman in exile. It is a stiry filled with the passions and adventure of an age of glory and squalor, nobility and depravity, courage and betrayal. It is a drama that ranges from an isolated castle in Wales, to the pomp and ceremony of London, to the glitter, intrigue and license of Paris. Above all, it is an intensely moving, unforgettable portayal of a woman as proud as she was beautiful, whose untamed heart was torn between two men and whose lovely body and shining spirit tipped the scales of history.
