  • Lady Alice Deincourt was a woman who was destined for life as just a daughter, sister, wife or widow. Her story would have been a casualty of time, to be lost to the past. Without investigation into the history of Dronfield Hall Barn, Alice would have remained anonymous forever. But what was her story, and why did she never remarry? As a noble woman she was connected by family and friendship to the movers and shakers of the political landscape that lead to the onset of the War of the Roses. Her story takes us right to the heart of the seminal historical events that shaped the Britain of her time. Discover her fascinating story with this book.
