Coming soonAs a rule, nineteen-year-old Thomas Walsingham enjoys riding as a courier for his powerful cousin Sir Francis, Queen Elizabeth’s spymaster – but things take a definite turn for the worse when an English glove-maker traveling to the French Court is murdered, and secret instructions for the English ambassador in Paris disappear. To seek justice for the dead man and avert international disaster, Tom must risk his career – and perhaps his life – as he navigates danger and intrigue on the highways of France and England.

Coming soonKeepers of the Dead At Eleanor of Aquitaine’s court in Poitiers, fourteen year old lady Joanna is seduced by Eleanor’s married son, prince Henry. When Joanna’s aunt, Alice, complains, Eleanor responds by inviting them both to be Her attending-ladies. Subsequently, Alice and Joanna experience a period of security and luxury they’ve never known, while becoming the closest confidantes of Eleanor and Her daughter, princess Marie. They are immersed in the romantic and refined troubadour culture of the court, interspersed, however, with bloody hawking excursions. They travel to the austere – but peaceful – abbey of Fontevrault for retreats and keep Christmas with the royal family at the wild, barbaric castle of Chinon in the Loire. They are witness to the increasingly fractious relationship between Eleanor and Her estranged husband, King Henry II of England, as he continuously interferes with Her barons in Aquitaine. Henry’s autocratic rule inspires rebellion in those closest to him, including his sons and the powerful Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket. When the feud with Becket ends tragically, Eleanor risks everything in order to regain freedom for Herself and Her sons, drawing Alice and Joanna into a world of intrigue, danger and adventure.

Lynne Reid Banks is the author of ten acclaimed adult novels as well as many much-loved books for children.
She was born in London in 1929, the only child of a Scottish doctor and an Irish actress. During WW2 she was evacuated to the prairies of Canada where she spent 5 years. After studying at RADA in the late 1940’s she became an actress and later joined ITN to become one of the first women TV news reporters in Britain. Her first novel, The L-Shaped Room, was published in 1960 and caused outrage in more conservative quarters for its portrayal of a an unmarried mother-to-be who is thrown out by her father and has to live in the L-shaped room of the title. The novel was later adapted for cinema by the legendary Bryan Forbes and brought great critical acclaim.
In the early 1960's she went to live in a kibutz in Israel with her husband where she taught English. In 1971 she brought her family back to London where she continued to write for adults and children including her classic children’s novel, The Indian in the Cupboard which has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and was made into a highly successful feature film.
In 2013 Lynne won the prestigious JM Barrie Award for her contribution to children's arts.
Lynne has now written over forty five books and lives in Shepperton, England.
