Under A Cloud – The Rival Courts, Book 2, by Luv Lubker
Meet familiar faces of friends and foes as in this second installment of The Rival Courts.
Vicky’s father, Albert, the Prince Consort, has just died, leaving them under a heavy cloud of grief, without their dearest friend and advisor, at a most critical time: The political horizon grows dark with storm clouds at the entry of Bismarck to Germany’s political stage in 1862.
Will Fritz’s courage stand the test as he confronts the spider in its web? Is Prussia really fighting for the rights of the Schleswig people, or is so much blood being shed for the sake of Prussia’s aggrandizement?
Join Vicky and Fritz on their journeys under the blue, cloudless skies of the Mediterranean to the peaceful heather-clad hills of the Highlands of Scotland; to the burning heat of the North African desert to the raging blizzards of a winter war in Denmark.
When Vicky’s closest friend disappears, will she be able to keep the secret?
Will old enemies prove to be friends, and old friends prove to be enemies?
