A grand-scale historical novel from the national bestselling author of Mistress Shakespeare .

Born into a first family of Ireland, with royal ties on both sides, Elizabeth Fitzgerald-known as Gera-finds her world overturned when Henry VIII imprisons her father, the Earl of Kildare, and brutally destroys her family. Torn from the home she loves, her remaining family scattered, Gera dares not deny the refuge offered her in England's glittering royal court. There she must navigate ever-shifting alliances even as she nurtures her secret desire for revenge. From County Kildare's lush green fields to London's rough-and-tumble streets and the royal court's luxurious pageantry, The Irish Princess follows the journey of a daring woman whose will cannot be tamed, and who won't be satisfied until she restores her family to its rightful place in Ireland.

I really enjoyed reading this book. If you like historical fiction and novels written by Philippa Gregory (The Other Boleyn Girl, The White Queen), then definitely check out this book. I liked it so much that I bought my own brand new copy off eBay!

Although based on historical events, the fictional plot is too far-fetched. Plus it's too depressing for me.

Very good read, I will get more of her historical romances.
