Local author Susan Coventry says she’s a Jersey girl at heart, but the subject of her debut novel is much further afield. Coventry writes historical fiction, and “The Queen’s Daughter” centers on one of the children of that famously feuding royal couple Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II. The teen princess Joan is being married off to one of 12th-century Europe’s power players, and she’s torn between familial loyalty and love. Coventry has fashioned the book to bridge young adult and adult audience appeal, as she’ll discuss at her reading/signing at Carmichael’s.—T.E. Lyons
