Thank you to Tony Riches for hosting my guest post on the Turbulent Life of Nest Ferch Rhys, her relationship with King Henry I, and how she lived through the Norman conquest of Wales. Nest is the heroine of my Conquest trilogy. The first book, Daughter of the Last King, has just been reissued and books 2 and 3 are coming in April and May and can be preordered now.
Main image shows Cilgerran Castle, which may be where Nest was kidnapped by the Welsh prince, Owain ap Cadwagn. Or Carew Castle, below, may have been the site where she was abducted and her Norman husband, Gerald FitzWalter, escaped down the toilet chute to the moat.
My new book covers are designed by Jessica Bell.
