The Crown Rose tells the story of Isabelle of France, born heir to the throne: her life from childhood to her later years was one of turmoil, strife, and longing...
The year is 1240. It is the reign of King Louis IX. Knighthood is still honored, though the traditions are beginning to fade. This will be the last generation of knights as we understand them. It is a time of intense chivalry and faith; religious orders such as the Templars, the Franciscans, the Dominicans, and the Knights of Malta are springing up everywhere. And it is a time of conflict between nations struggling and warring to form their own identities and their own destinies.
The Crown Rose portrays the mystery of one man who enters Isabelle's life at several key moments, becoming her icon, her soul's other half, and her destiny - a man who may, in fact, be much more than an ordinary man. His bloodline goes back to the Holy Land, and he is far, far older than he appears.
The Crown Rose weaves its tale around the actual events of the time, blending historical realism with a hint of the fantastic. It is a tale of chivalry, knighthood, romance, and war; of lost secrets and hidden mysteries; of honor, duty, and sacrifice; and of the power of a few dedicated people to change the face of the world itself.
