What happened to the family of King Harold after William the Conqueror won the Battle of Hastings? Carol McGrath has delved into one of history's forgotten footnotes and come up with the astonishing story of Thea, the exiled English princess destined for Russian royalty. An enthralling tale, told with elegance and sympathy.
