Anne of Austria, a historical fiction, is based on the life of Anne in the years before she assumed the Regency of France for her young son, Louis XIV. The account chronicles her unhappy marriage to Louis XIII and her rejection of a tumultuous relationship with Cardinal Richelieu, the most powerful man in the kingdom. Rebecca Lacey's subdued but passionate narration easily carries one through the intrigues of a court in turmoil and adroitly guides the reader. Evelyn Bridget Patricia Stephens was born in London, England on July 3, 1928. As her writing career began in the early 1950s, she wrote under the pseudonym Evelyn Anthony. She began her career writing historical romances but switched to writing espionage thrillers in the late 1960s. Her romance novels included Rebel Princess and Anne Boleyn: A Novel. Her espionage thrillers include The Defector, The Legend, The Assassin, and The Doll's House. The Tamarind Seed was adapted into a film released in 1974. She died from heart failure on September 25, 2018 at the age of 92.
