International Best Seller Colin Falconer

stories of romance and epic adventure


When you make a movie for the big screen, you’re allowed to completely rewrite history, apparently.

A lot of people like Braveheart, for instance. I wonder though if we could have liked it just as well without the kilts, and William Wallace not having an affair with Isabella of France, because he didn’t and she was only three years old at the time.

The mistakes they make in movies you’d never get away with in a novel, (mumbles something about tomatoes.)


When you watch a movie, how important is historical accuracy to you? And do you have different standards for a novel??

Here’s the story of the man Isabella really did have an affair with …

She was taught to obey. Now she has learned to rebel.

Isabella, Edward II, Braveheart

12 year old Isabella, a French princess marries the King of England – only to discover he has a terrible secret.

Ten long years later she is in utter despair – does she submit to a lifetime of solitude and a spiritual death – or seize her destiny and take the throne of England for herself?

This is the story of Isabella, the only woman ever to invade England – and win.



“This is phenomenal historical fiction that is highly recommended. Once you read Colin Falconer, you’ll want to read everything he has ever written as well as what he will craft in the future!” – Crystal Book Reviews

    Clever promoting.Good on you. And yes, being as uneducated as I am in history, I do wish movies would be accurate because that is just a grand opportunity to raise the historical understanding of people like me.

  2. I don’t trust movies to give me any kind of accuracy – historical or otherwise. Perhaps I’m cynical, but that’s how little I trust Hollywood. I depend much more on fiction to be accurate. I often cross check information when I’m reading a novel and am delighted each time I find that the author is spot on.
