Morgan’s third novel illuminates the bold life and struggles of Anne of Brittany as the 15th century gave way to the 16th. Orphaned at 11, Anne inherits the feudal duchy of Brittany. . . from her father and fights to be recognized as the de facto ruler. Though betrayed by her guardians, Madame de Dinan and Marshal de Rieux, who plot to get her married to the obnoxious Alain d’Albret, Anne refuses to be cowed, thwarting d’Albret’s self-interested schemes. In a clever counter move, she dares to have herself crowned and declares her opponents, rebels. But life and love remain complicated, and for Brittany’s welfare she is forced to marry by proxy Maximilian, King of the Romans, who promises to be there as Anne and Brittany face the direst of times.

KEIRA’S VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR LAUNCH SCHEDULE

FOR THE IMPORTANCE OF WIVES: BOOK 1, THE CHRONICLES OF THE HOUSE OF VALOIS

As a kid Keira was a bookworm. She discovered the Renaissance as a wonderful place of queens, princesses, and castles. When she studied the period at university, she realized that life for those same queens and princesses wasn’t nearly as romantic as she had dreamed, but it was much more fascinating. The clothing, the food, the way people travelled, how they lived, how they brought up their children, what they thought about, and why—all these things intrigued her. 

During her career, she continued her research and wrote fiction about the period as her secret passion. When she moved to Mexico she started writing full time. The Importance of Wives is her third published novel about Anne of Brittany, in her The Chronicles of the House of Valois series. The Importance of Sons and The Importance of Pawns continue the story of this inspiring woman who was also twice queen of France.
