In 1759 the young and wilful Franulka leaves her castle home for Warsaw, where she attracts the attentions of the King’s son. Eighteen months later, with her Fool and maid, she vanishes. A closed carriage in the early morning, with an armed outrider, suggests disgrace and exile.But nothing is as it seems. Caught up in a deadly conspiracy, only the Fool can save her. But is the price too high? Shifting between Poland, Russia, Venice and an Adriatic island, this is a gripping historical mystery, a passionate love story and a moving study of the painful growth of self-awareness.“Here’s a novel that grabs you by the ear and eye and plunges you into the life of 18th century Poland: court intrigues, love sacred and profane, jealousy, rage, adventure, comedy and danger. And your guide is that wisest of men, a professional ‘fool’. The journey to his island is a thrilling one.” Piers Plowright, Broadcaster and Critic“A born storyteller.” Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture“Powerfully written, impeccably researched.” Elizabeth Carter-Jones, Reviewer
