For decades, Pamela Kaufman has entertained a loyal
readership with the mesmerizing and often hilarious
adventures of Alix of Wanthwaite, madcap medieval beauty. In

crusades dressed as a man to spar with the king of England
over her birthright. Banners of Gold saw her taken hostage,
drawn into a web of international politics, and entangled in
the heartstrings of three different men. Now, The Prince of
Poison finds Alix homeward bound at last, with a half-royal

Eleanor of Aquitaine, spinning the historical novel in a
