The Path to Somerset

Please join me in congratulating Janet Wertman on the publication of The Path to Somerset, sequel to her highly acclaimed debut, Jane the Quene! I had the pleasure of designing the cover. Here's the book description:

After the tragic romance of Jane the Quene, the second book in the Seymour Saga trilogy, The Path to Somerset, takes a dark turn through an era in which King Henry VIII descends into cynicism, suspicion and fits of madness – and in which mistakes mean death. 

Edward Seymour’s future is uncertain. Although his sister Jane bore Henry the son he’d sought for twenty years, when she died in childbirth, Henry’s good nature died with her. Now the fiercely ambitious Edward must carve a difficult path through Henry’s shifting principles and wives. Challenged at every turn by his nemesis, Bishop Stephen Gardiner, Edward must embrace ruthlessness in order to safeguard not only his own future but England’s as well. 

This is the account of Henry’s tumultuous reign, as seen through the eyes of two opponents whose fierce disagreements over religion and common decency fuel epic struggles for the soul of the nation. And for power.

The Path to Somerset is available now in ebook and print format on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Jane's website for delicious tidbits from her historical research.
