From the cover: “WHAT kind of a girl was Lucy Walter, first love and possibly the wife of Charles II? She was the mother of the Duke of Monmouth and she was beautiful. Had she other attributes than beauty? Has her character been misrepresented down the years? Elizabeth Goudge, with good reason to believe so, presents her life-story in a fresh and fascinating light. It begins with her childhood at Roch Castle, Pembrokeshire, and ends when Charles is restored to the throne of England.
