Product Details


“Her thorough grounding in medieval history is apparent in Campion’s richly detailed 14th-century saga…Suspenseful, romantic, but surprisingly gritty, it doesn’t take long to be drawn into this enthralling story of turmoil and conflict in the early stages of the Hundred Years’ War…Campion’s depictions of the people—complex, tricky, faithless and loyal—leap right off these pages and stick in your memory.”
 —Seattle Times

“A well-researched, beautifully written novel of the fourteenth century that will have readers of history entranced.”

 —Library Journal

“Emma Campion brings Plantagenet history to life in this ‘You Are There’ historical novel. A Triple Knot unties a fascinating puzzle from the past and pulls the reader into the loves and losses, tragedies and triumphs of a dynamic woman, Joan, the Fair Maid of Kent. An impressively researched and realistically rendered novel.”
 —Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The First Princess of Wales

A Triple Knot is a superbly written, evocative tale of Joan of Kent that captivated me from the first page and held me until the very end. With a deft eye for detail and a wonderfully authentic evocation of time and place, Campion has delivered what is certain to become a classic.”
—Diane Haeger, author of The Secret Bride: In the Court of Henry VIII

“In this meticulously researched, richly detailed and empathetic novel, Emma Campion skillfully brings to life the enchanting Joan, Fair Maid of Kent and First Princess of Wales who was described by the chronicler Jean Froissart as ‘the most beautiful woman in all the realm of England, and the most loving.’ With a bigamous union bracketed by two secret marriages—one to the Black Prince—she makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the glittering court of Edward III where intrigue and danger walk hand in hand with royalty and love.” 
—Sandra Worth, author of The King’s Daughter: A Novel of the First Tudor Queen

“With grace, accuracy and authenticity, Emma Campion brings Joan of Kent and her world to vivid, captivating life in A Triple Knot. Campion’s 14th century is as detailed, gorgeous and fascinating as a millefleur tapestry—her history is immaculate, her characters convincing, and Joan, who is sometimes glossed over in the history books as the Fair Maid of Kent and little more, is complex yet sympathetic as Campion clarifies all the questions that historians might raise about this enigmatic woman. This exciting, compelling historical novel immerses the reader until the very last sentence. I loved A Triple Knot and I look forward to more from Emma Campion!”
—Susan Fraser King, author of Lady Macbeth and Queen Hereafter

A Triple Knot is the story of a steadfast love pitted against the cold, political maneuverings of 14th century Plantagenet royals. Set amid the hardships and uncertainties of the Hundred Years War, Emma Campion’s portrayal of Joan of Kent and of the men who seek to claim her is masterful, sweeping us into a high medieval world that is both gracious and grim. Brilliantly imagined, this is a complex and ravishing blend of history, intrigue, scandal and romance.”
—Patricia Bracewell, author of Shadow on the Crown

“Emma Campion’s Joan of Kent is a remarkable creation. She springs off the page, completely alive, growing in stature and confidence as her young
years pass, steadfast in her love in spite of all adversities. Compassionate, loving, she moves with grace and splendor throughout. A Triple Knot is a brilliant, tender portrait of a passionate woman in dangerous times.”
Chris Nickson, author of the Richard Nottingham novels
