Amid the lush valleys and fragrant wildflowers of
Provence, Marguerite, ElĂ©onore, Sanchia, and Beatrice have
learned to charm, hunt, dance, and debate under the
careful tutelage of their ambitious motherâ€”and to abide by
the countessâ€™s motto: â€śFamily comes first.â€ť
With Provence under constant attack, their legacy and
safety depend upon powerful alliances. Margueriteâ€™s
illustrious match with the young King Louis IX makes her
Queen of France. Soon ElĂ©onoreâ€”independent and daringâ€”is
betrothed to Henry III of England. In turn, shy, devout
Sanchia and tempestuous Beatrice wed noblemen who will
also make them queens.
Yet a crown is no guarantee of protection. Enemies are
everywhere, from Margueriteâ€™s duplicitous mother-in-law to
vengeful lovers and land-hungry barons. Then there are the
dangers that come from within, as loyalty succumbs to
bitter sibling rivalry, and sister is pitted against
sister for the prize each believes is rightfully hersâ€”
From the treacherous courts of France and England, to the
bloody tumult of the Crusades, Sherry Jones traces the
extraordinary true story of four fascinating sisters whose
passions, conquests, and progeny shaped the course of

Wow what amazing woman!
(Deborah Garcia 1:06am July 14, 2012)
I think they all sound like amazing women who had the courage to do what they felt needed to be done.
(Chelsea Knestrick 1:21am July 14, 2012)
Each of them seem to have been extraordinary women in their own right. I would love to get to know more about each of them.
Good luck and happy writing!
(Tracie Travis 2:22am July 14, 2012)
I hope they inspire others as they have inspired me...

(Bonnie Capuano 9:28am July 14, 2012)
What a great history lesson. I love learning things like this.
(Catherine Lee 9:48am July 14, 2012)
You're so right that true power comes from within. Power is strength,
courage and bravery. These ladies all had it, even Sanchia in her own way.
Women in history had to have been tough whether they were titled or not.
With the strains of childbirth, child-rearing and fighting illnesses, they simply
had to be. I'm looking forward to reading "Four Sisters - All Queens." I have
been hearing about it and I'm betting that this novel will be a huge best-

Enjoyed your blog, sounds like a great read. With four sister being queens there may be a power struggle to see who is number one.
(Sheila True 3:18pm July 14, 2012)
Wow, what a description of these four women and their ability to assist their husbands. Queens most definitely, but not as we picture them to be, they have the heavy hand.
This book was the topic of conversation in my Yoga class today. We look forward to reading it.

(Mary Hay 3:42pm July 14, 2012)
I love to learn about history but find historical novels the best way. The Queen's being sister's is fasinating. It doesn't sound like they listened to there mother when she said family first, though.
(Kathleen Bianchi 3:53pm July 14, 2012)
I think this would be a great book to read this summer.

Such an amazing story of four wonderfuly strong women & that they are sisters is so inspiring. I have 4 very strong, inspiring sisters in my life - my aunts! They have shown me my whole life that women can be strong and do anything they set their minds to and at the same time, they have taught me how important it is to have a strong family bond! I would love to read more about these amazing sisters! I hope we all can learn and be inspired by their story!

(Joanne Bozik 6:57pm July 15, 2012)
I love historical books that portray the inner strength and intelligence of women. Women who know how to get what they want in a way that makes others feel they are the ones making the decisions. There are a lot of strong women with a quiet touch out there. Thanks so writing books that portray all of us the way we were meant to be!

ElĂ©onore, Queen of England, married King Henry III, a kind but mercurial man better suited to art collecting and architecture than ruling. A bold and forceful woman, she donned the proverbial pants in the family and pushed for England's expansion. She was unstoppable. She was six months pregnant when she got on a boat to Gascony to help Henry fight for Poitiers, which the French had stolen. She put her uncles from the House of Savoy into prominent positions in England and married hundreds of other family members into the aristocracy, shoring up her own support network and elevating her family. She worked tirelessly to gain Sicily so that her younger son, Edmund, would have a kingdom, as well. She also raised money and armies to resist a lengthy armed revolution, and assisted in her eldest son Edward's escape from the rebels.happy birthday wishes for sister
