Betrayal of Trust is a work of fiction in the historical fiction, interpersonal drama, and intrigue subgenres, and forms the second novel in the Roses & Rebels series following the real historical figure Philippe de Carteret. The work is best suited to mature adult readers owing to scenes of a sexual nature plus references to both military and sexual violence. Penned by author C.V. Lee, this highly engrossing work showcases true events that affected the island of Jersey as a result of the Wars of the Roses in the 15th century. From political tension to marital strife, we delve into the human beings behind the pages of history and the tough choices they were forced to make in order to survive and thrive.
Author C.V. Lee has crafted a deeply engaging historical work that takes the dry facts of history and breathes new life and emotional resonance into them with every stroke of the pen. As a big fan of Jersey and an avid explorer of its history and heritage, I was delighted to be drawn into Philippe de Carteret’s lineage, societal pressures, and romantic entanglements. I really enjoyed the artistic license of the author in delving into the psyche and emotions of both Phillippe and Margaret as they face objection and intrusion from all sides whilst trying to do what’s best for their hearts and their futures. Overall, Betrayal of Trust is a cinematically penned historical piece that gives both the grandeur and grit of 15th-century living and I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in engaging emotive tales that bring history to life.
