I was going thru the upcoming HF books at Amazon, when I noticed a reprint by Hilda Lewis. It's titled I, Jacqueline (ISBN 0752445642). There's no blurb about it.
I never heard of this author. I was wondering if any of you have read her. What do you think of her? Anyone know what the new reprint is about? New reprint - is that an oxymoron? :)
This is from the UK site:
A historical fiction that presents the life and loves of Jacqueline of Hainaut, thrice married, thrice imprisoned and ransomed; the extraordinary fifteenth century life of a woman who endured the power politics of the courts of England, Burgundy and France.
I'm not really sure who she is though, although a possibility might be the wife of Humphrey of Glouchester (the youngest son of Henry IV). He married a woman named Jacqueline in the early 1400's who I think was from Hainaut and had been married at least once before. Here's some info on her (in case it is the same person).
