Author(s): Adam Nicolson

British History

In Quarrel with the King, Adam Nicolson, the bestselling author of God's Secretaries and Seize the Fire, explores questions of loyalty, power, betrayal, and rebellion, as witnessed through the life and times of one of England's richest and most influential families. Spanning the most turbulent and dramatic years of English history--from the 1520s to 1650--Quarrel with the King tells the story of four generations of the Pembroke family, following their glamorous trajectory across 130 years of change, ambition, resistance, and war, culminating in rebellion against the king.--Noel Malcolm, Daily Telegraph (London)
