The Baron des Canolles is a man torn apart by the civil war that dominates mid-seventeenth century France.

For while the naive Gascon soldier cares little for the politics behind the battles, he is torn apart by a deep passion for two powerful women on opposing sides of the war: Nanon de Lartigues, a keen supporter of the Queen Regent Anne of Austria, and the Victomtesse de Cambes, who supports the rebellious forces of the Princess de Conde.

Set around Bordeaux during the first turbulent years of the reign of Louis XIV, "The Women's War" sees two women taking central stage in a battle for all France.

Humorous, dramatic and romantic, it offers a compelling exploration of political intrigue, the power of redemption, the force of love and the futility of war.
