 Lauren Groff-Matrix Cover

As the illegitimate half-sister of King Henry II, Marie enjoys life at the court... until the Queen banishes her to a convent because she is deemed unfit for marriage.  Marie uses her formidable intellect to build the struggling community of women.  Described as a “defiant and timely exploration of the raw power of female creativity in a corrupted world,” Groff’s lyrical prose is a joy to read and earned a spot on NPR’s list of Best Books of 2021.
