Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy sold in US


Elizabeth Chadwick's forthcoming Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy is now commissioned on both sides of the Atlantic: Sourcebooks have just acquired US rights and Sphere are publishing the trilogy in the UK. Chadwick chronicles the compelling life of Eleanor of Aquitaine, taking an entirely fresh approach to this Queen who was a wife to, and the mother of, kings. The first in the series, THE SUMMER QUEEN, is delivered and will be published in the UK in June. The next two novels in the trilogy are THE WINTER CROWN and THE AUTUMN THRONE.

Chadwick, who was winner of the Romantic Novelists' Association Historical Novel of the Year Award in 2011, is a New York Times bestseller. Sourcebooks have reissued a number of her backlist titles with stunning new covers, including SHADOWS AND STRONGHOLDS which they have just published. We are thrilled that Sourcebooks have continued their dedication to this brilliant author.
